A tale of woe.
I bought some used Revs a year or so ago and have performed no maintenance on them in that time. Recently I have noticed that I was losing air out of the negative spring over the period of a week or so and the positive only needed 100Psi as opposed to the usual 120 I was running. I was waiting till I had some time to send them off to TFTuned to get the wipers, foams and what have you serviced.
Anyway I set off for work on it a couple of weeks ago and the left hand leg, air side, blew the wiper seal off. I bit the bullet and sent them to TFTuned expecting there to be some damage internally and I was right. The shaft was scored which was causing the leak in the Neg spring. Great, a hefty bill for the service and the new part but the forks feel like new again now.
What I should have done was given them the odd relube of the lowers which would have stopped the shaft damage. Rockshox recommend every 30 hours. I should also have resoaked the foams at the top of the legs with lube. Sadly I did neither...

and also add air to the Neg spring while the bike is upside down.
Teach me to be lazy...
