I Just installed a 2018 Fox 34 on my bike.

IIRC Fox recommend to service the lowers every 30hrs.

Is this 30hrs service only to flush oil and clean or I need to replace dust wipers too?

At the rate I ride, I'll have to do the maintenance every 4-5 weeks.

Thanks

I change bath oil 3 or 4 times a year and dust seals about once a year unless they're looking trashed or the oil is noticeably dirty.


I even reuse crush washers because I like to live on the edge.

My bikes each see around 1000-1500 miles per year. My service intervals are.
Bath oil - Every 2-3 months
Foam Rings - Replaced when doing bath oil depending on how dirty they are
Dust Wipers - Replaced 2-3 times per year, When not replaced, thoroughly cleaned and wiped down.
Air Spring Service - Completed with Dust Wiper Replacement (every other bath oil replacement)
Full Damper Service - Every 12-24 months depending on conditions and mileage

With the seals is there any indication one should change them ---or are folks just doing it ? Mine are old but show no issues so have not and seem to work fine----am I blowing it on this ?
