Hey

Whilst servicing my forks (rockshox sid world cup xx) I've managed to damage the damper. Probably due to my usual monkey like approach to anything mechanical.

I guess I'm going to have to suck it up and buy a new one, however I've put it back in and it's runs perfectly fine (for now). I've got a couple of races coming up very soon so I'm wondering whether it's ok to ride for a while? Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.

Cheers

If it "runs perfectly fine" as you say then why would you replace a perfectly functioning part?

I'm thinking from the perspective of as its currently slightly broken, if the plastic side was to fully break, could this cause a larger problem? Cause further damage or issues with other parts? Or will the suspension just stop functioning very well?

Just been out for a 3 hour ride though and its still fine, so perhaps i'm worrying about nothing.

Thanks. Good to know it's a dodgy part. Is it ok keep using it for the time being?
Also, is the rtc3 damper a better replacement or does this still have the same issues?
Cheers
