I just picked up an 07 36 Talas RC2 and I'd hate to ruin the damn thing by pounding on it so soon. Is there a general rule of thumb for breaking in forks? If at all?

Fox forks come so broken in from factory, they're almost ready for service. ;)

Just kidding, well, mostly. Don't worry about abusing it, that's what it's there for.

The "break in period" refers to the time it takes for the seals/bushings to loosen up (some forks take longer than others) but like was said, no need to go easy on it.

Some people find it's worth setting your compression and maybe pressure a bit softer till it loosens up too.
