they are 2003-04, they are only the second lot of forks i have serviced, the others being bombers which are easy peasy. took me about 3 hours to do them, but then i did rebuild them back to front at one point.
definitely doable though, reckon i could do em in about an hour now

send me a pm with your email and will send you the pdf

The Mr Hyde is my winter weapon of choice. Bombproof, singlespeed, massive clearances......

@mikee

back brake: was going to be HS33 - but think i've packed it away up to my folks! :oops: so it'll just be an LX Vbrake
s/s off road okay? not tried it yet! will let you know! still figuring out which set up i want - me thinks a 19 or 20t at back as i have 40t up front

i like those i-drives, if i wasnt an FSR man i think i'd be an i-drive :)
