Hey Team ...... pulling my Judy XC's down for an overhaul.

Following the Rock Shox Service PDF and get to the part where you undo the 6mm allen bolt in the bottom of the fork lower legs and then the manual states ..... After removing both 6mm bolts, pull lower tube/brace assembly free of upper tubes. See fig. 2E.

Well the lower will not pull off the upper tubes.??

I am sure the last time I did this with another Rock Shox fork, the lowers came straight off.

Am I missing something here or are they just stuck??

Could be just stuck, put the bolts back in a few threads and give them a tap with a mallet.

Thanks Kaiser .... just came back from the shed. Tried putting the bolts back in and giving them a whack with the mallet .... no good. They just come to a dead stop at the end of their travel.

...... when in doubt, just get a bigger hammer.

Hit em a bit harder this time and presto .....

Now does anyone have a good tip for dissolving the elastomer crud stuck all over the inside of the tubes??
