Don't suppose anyone has one of these spare...? (or knows how to strip and service - tried amp but no response which doesn't seem like them so thought I'd try here)

Looking for the piston and a couple of the bolts - amp f4 fork.

Did you try Brion at Amp?

he can take a few days to respond, but is very helpful

Servicing one is pretty simple. You need to clamp the main body and unscrew the non-piston end if memory serves. Easier if you have the right tool but not impossible without.

Sounds positive - I'll give it a try, hopefully nothing internally is knackered, it's definitely out oil as it's dry as a parrot. I don't know much about how it operates so hopefully no seals are shot :?

Correct, use an axle clamp in a vise to hold the shock body then unscrew the non-shaft head counter-clockwise.
