I have a 2009 Rockshox WC front fork with some internal issues. It started leaking a lot of oil out the top right side at the end of last year. Took it to the shop and they replaced all the seals and did a full service. Now it doesn't leak oil, but if I ride on it while keeping weight on the front it will slowly collapse until about 1 inch of travel left.
If I pull up it will extend all the way out and process repeats. I was in Whistler over the weekend and they said they could fix it but I don't live there so I didn't want to leave my bike. Called Dunbar today and they said parts aren't available for this fork now so they won't take it??
So not sure what to believe, and what to do? Anyone have any idea what could be the problem? I know there are aftermarket cartridges if that is the issue? Is there a way to test that? I was also told it could be just a leaking bladder?? I am comfortable taking it apart myself, just not sure how to test it to know what is the problem.
Or is it time to just get something newer?
