Morning All

One of these turned up on a frame I have just bought. Could anyone point me in the direction of a user / service /setting up guide please? I have done the usual internet searches without success.

Many thanks

Fox service guides are very difficult to find online unless you are a dealer or service tech.
Fox recommend sending them away to specialists like TF Tuned or Mojo in the UK, and I suspect they don't publish online to ensure that the majority of owners pay for professional servicing.

Have a search on youtube for Fox service videos though, as there are several very useful ones uploaded by a few people.

This any good?

http://www.birota.ru/manuals/foxflow/19 ... manual.pdf

Was asking same question earlier in week regarding a SID rear shock, did some more Googling and found it on this site,

www.birota.ru

The problem I had with the Rockshox SID manual was the Google translated version was jumbled up. Used the translation of the site to work out what to click on the Russian version and found that it was OK.

Fox have some great info on their site for forks, not sure about rear shocks though: http://service.foxracingshox.com/consumers/index.htm

Thank you all for your help,

old_coyote_pedaller that guide of yours seems to be pretty close to what I need.

Given the age of the shock, I supect if there are problems it will be cheaper to buy a good used alternative rather than service or repair the current one. At least with that set up guide, I hope I will have an idea how to adjust / set it up.

Glad the link I posted was relevant. 8)

There must be a site somewhere that has a service guide for the Vanilla T/C, might have another Google later for it. Took me a while but I eventually found most of what I was looking for about Leftys and Headshoks.
