I've got a Rockshox SID dual air shock on my bike, and the rebound damping isn't quite what it used to be. Given the age of it, its probably well overdue a service and a change of oil.

Anyone have any idea of price, and an idea of a good place to send it?

I think I have a old MBR magazine guide of how to DIY service these. Do you fancy giving it a go yourself?

Always wiling to have a go, but I thought you needed about a million psi of nitrogen injected through a needle into the damper?

Not sure if that shock contains nitrogen or not. Will dig out the guide and see what it says.

Will see if I can scan it later to get a better image.

That's very cool. Thanks for scanning that in for me, it's much appreciated.

I've reviewed the service doc from MBR, and that bit is pretty simple, I've pulled the can off the body tonight, and the seals look ok. Its the actual damping mech that I think needs a dose of looking at, and the RockShox manual of the period details the further steps required to get into it.

For future readers, the manual can be found here;

Here are the relevant screenprints;

We should have a section for manuals and service guides. Great there's easy access to manuals for things like this, great for DIY :)

Can't you add it to rock show archive? Pm a mod to get them to? Agree with what you say!
