As title, looking for some help with rebuilding some early (98/99) SID's.

Anyone got any links to anything useful?

Might find something here,

http://my-sport.spb.ru/manual_1/index-21.htm

Although not specifically 98/99 SID's there's info on 2000/2001 SID's.

There's another Russian site I had a link to but can't find it at the moment. :oops:

Found it.

http://www.birota.ru/manuals/rockshox/index.php

Obviously it's in Russian so I used Google translate to navigate my way around but found that the PDF's didn't open properly in the translated version.
Opened another tab with the original Russian which worked OK.

Fluffychicken, good find, now saved for future reference. 8)

Cheers chaps.

I splurged £14 on these, and want to see how easy they are to rebuild:

Very kind of you, I'll pm you my email address, it should be easier to send that way, and easier for me to view, also.

Cheers. 8)

The only tip I can give for the 98 version is the fitting of new valves schrader type. No more hassle with the needle and dodgy valves.

I recently sanded and polished to look as the "original"
