Adding oil to new 888R

Just add your 5cc of oil in and see how the fork feels. In my 888RC I have 205 ml of oil in each leg and get still get full travel Spectro is good fork oil.

I was more concerned about mixing different oils from different companies.

Adding oil to new 888R

I need to add about 5ccs oil in each leg of my 888, but can I just add in more oil? Or do I have to drain the fork and add all new oil. I am concerned with mixing different brands of oil. I'll most likely use golden spectro 7.5W.

New RMX R3 good, left over parts after build bad

ok nvm then

why didnt u get the shop to put it together for you if you were unshure?

I though it would be a challenge, infact it was pretty easy. RM did a nice job of making the whole thing pretty easy.

I got a couple of left over parts from putting together my RMX R3 that I can't figure out where the heck they go.

Two yellow plastic blocks that say Shimano on them. They look like shipping spacers.

Two cone shaped dust boots for the Saint Hubs, heck if I know how to install them on the hubs as they don't fit nicely to any side.

One last thing are the bikes ready to go out of the box, the assembly seemed pretty easy, almost too easy. Is there anything that I need to do to the forks or shock.

SRAM X9 on Saint Hub/axle

Those look pretty sweet, looks like they attach to the QR axle or heck even the 10mm axle.

SRAM X9 on Saint Hub/axle

Anyone know if its possible to have the SRAM X9 rear D. replace the Saint Rear D while still having it mounted on the axle.

I like the idea of mounting the rear derailer to the axle but the saint rear derailer sucks compared to my X9. I don't want to connect the X9 to the drop out either.

Perhaps I would just need a threaded adapter to mount the X9 to the axle. But even then I'm not sure of the derailer would function properly that high up in that location.

Mavic Deemax Rims - 823 in yellow???

Anyone know if you can purchase just the Deemax yellow rims? I'm looking for the yellow rims only, not the 823s.

Mounting a Shiver on a BigHit - Impossible?

Most shivers come with the right crown. You shouldn't have any problems, they fit mine fine. Although I have a very thing headset.

Look on pinkbike for a picture with a shiver and a bighit.

Troy Lee Designs Moto Jersey???

Anyone have one? How does it fit? Large or small. I'm looking to wear armor underneath it. I figure a X large will do it, 5'10 185lbs.

Hayes 9's... Class action lawsuit?

Have you tried to replace the actaul hardware?? Vibration will cause the bolt and round retainer nut to wear . Buy new pieces and lock tight ASAP and you wont have any problems.

Worked for me.

brembo

AP Racing is muchho better IMO. They make almost all the F1 brakes and clutches.

Brembo is still good enough to run on my bike.

Don't get me wrong, their is some crazy sh!t but I found that the stunts were rather sparse for a trail that long.
