    Default 2011 Boxxer WCs only get half travel

    Hey guys,

    My Boxxers only seem to be getting half travel. They feel normal for the first half of the travel, but bottom out hard if they are compressed beyond that. Its not a clunk, it feels more like a hydraulic lock. Also, my beginning stroke rebound knob doesnt seem to turn (not sure if this could be related).

    Im happy to rebuild them, but they aren't leaking oil or anything yet so I would rather an easy solution if anyone knows of one... Also I want to ride on sunday :)

    Cheers.

    I'd suggest a water change.

    Internal leak. Damper has likely dumped at least some of its oil into the lower leg.
    Just ride the bloody thing and enjoy yourself!

    I build wheels... :wink:

    5 years sounds about right. Weird to think that I'm 20 now and I've been a member since '08 so I've been on here since I was... 11? Explains some of the shit posts I guess.

    I'd suggest there's more to your shit posts than just your age

    The inhalants have surely played a role too.

    Thanks mate, saw a similar guess on a PB thread. Will investigate.

    I knew keeping my quote the same for so long would come in handy.

    Also I have spare compression and rebound dampers if you need em.
