I'm weak... I have another SID on my workbench for overhaul. This is a 2004 SID Race. :)

Have you ever done the inverted Pure damper piston mod, Marp?

The first fork I ever opened was a '99 Judy. :) You have one you're thinking about servicing?

I haven't modified the dampers when I service them. I'm very interested in knowing more if you have some info to share. What's the "inverted damper" mod? :?:

My commuter is running a 01ish Judy Race. It was last opened in... ummm.... 01 to replace the way-too-soft springs with some EXTRA hard springs. I need to service it, I just have not taken the time. It doesn't have many miles on it (less than 500), but the time thing needs to be addressed. I haven't messed with it because I haven't decided to use it on the next bike or just stay rigid.

Not much to do for those. As long as the stanchions aren't all boogered up you can just replace the seals, add splash fluid, and seal it up. :)

Open up the Pure damper, see the gray piston with shims on it? Flip it over. You don't have to bleed anymore too which is a nice plus.

Gather all of the necessary tools...

Used forks... Removing the lowers is always a surprise... Didn't look promising... ;)

Image


Not too bad, right?

Image


Here's what it looked like under those seals. :lol: It cleaned up nicely, though...

Image Image


I stripped everything down and the only issue was some scratching inside the stanchion on the air piston side. That means these uppers weren't salvageable. :( I had another 28mm SID upper hanging on the wall for just such an occasion. The replacement uppers did have a few spots where the coating was chipped. I repaired those using 2000 grit wet sanding and clear nail polish. :)


Everything now squeaky clean and ready for reassembly.

Image Image


New rubbery bits...

Image


Bits installed...

Image


New seals...

Image Image


Ain't she pretty? :D

Image


1.30 kg

Now to build a for sale listing... :wave:
