Anyone know a source of NOS parts to service MAG 21's? I've got some 21's and 21SL/Ti's that could do with a refresh.

Am i right in thinking somebody also did long travel conversions for these forks? What travel did they give?

Thanks! :)

2 of my SL Ti´s are stock, with 43mm of travel. The other one has a long travel kit, and delivers 64mm of travel. A friend of mine who has a fork tuning company says they are very easy to make, so when he has time to make a few, i can ask him 2 or 3 more kits...

Cheers

Vitor

the short travel kit , is basicly a short pair of bushings , if your confident enough , you could cut your existing ones down

So the extra travel comes from reducing the length of the bushings?

I'm primarily after new internals to service the forks with.

rockshox themselves did the long travel kit. hippytech suspension in the US might be able to help with spares if you're not sorted already :)

I've read a couple of guides to servicing these forks and all recommend the use of a proper Rock Shox Mag Series Bushing puller.

What is the alternative to doing it properly? :lol:
