perhaps with the o-rings in place it does push together and when bolted in place won't leak or anyhing

ouch........

yes was gonna say before you pulled it all out, there should be a grub /allen screwto remove and pour oill in, hence the syringe i mentioned earlier.

Been thinking about that clunk...........looks like the only top out bumber your have is the rubber thing that looks like a dogs nose..........perhaps it was in the right way before, but it strikes me the 'it' has to be the 1st thing that gets hit when the inner legs return upwards and the rod inside the fork is pulling way in the other direction....and seating above the c-clip and washer

When you put it back together or if you can see how it was to me the'dogs nose' should be lower than the black splined plastic thing...if they were together...........perhaps they are the wrong way round and hard plastic is getting slapped 1st instead of soft rubber.

a closer look makes it look like a 'cup and ball' so the rubber does't deform too much , so is pushed in the black slined cup (not a spring holder after all)...........i'd just reverse the two if poss so the rubber gets 1st contact instead on the hard plactic...........does this make sence for you looking at it in person ?

maybe stick a very thin supporting washer under ther rubber thing maybe not ??

Nope not really looking at the diagram on the 98 it looks like am only missing 2 wave washers the bottom bump out is optional and since i only got about 30-40 cc of oil out of both sides of the fork cold that not be also the reason for topping out dunno. well am going up to get oil now as the shop was closed for half day this morning for some repairs or something

I think diffyear forks had diff internal sets up, but good luck this sarvo................if the rebound cart was empty and you had no damping that would make it clunk back quicker ?!

all i could find was oil quantity from same fork but diff year so might be quite diff, best of luck :D
