Who Services Their Own Scott's Dampener???

7 posts in this topic

Hey Dodger,

I just did mine. There's no mystery except when replacing the oil. You MUST do as they recommend in the instructions.

Go to:

http://www.scottsperformance.com/indexmain.html

and download the instructions. It's pretty simple and I was amazed at how much better it worked with fresh fluid.

And, BTW, instead of using their special tool, I just picked up a syringe at the local vet supply store.

I also did mine. It was easy. It began leaking after a get off. I tore it apart, cleaned up the seals, put new 2 wt fork oil in and had no problems since.

What's involved and is there much to it??? I read in the manual that your supposed to send your dampener into Scotts after the first 40 hrs of riding. Since I am way over the first 40 hrs I decieded to call Scotts to get some info. The guy at Scotts asked how long I've had it, (about 6 months now), and said there was no reason that I should need to send it in. He said just change out the oil, ride for another 4 - 6 months, and then look at sending it in for sevice. (That's all baring a get off of course!)

So, I'm assuming that this is an easy process....do I buy special oil from Scotts??

Thanks in advance.........

Dodger :):D

The Scotts and Ohlins are the same, both made by Ohlins. I would say it is the single biggest improvement you can make for riding sand, roots or rocks. Also VERY helpful in the scary fast stuff.
