You can use the fork without the remote but I found it very difficult to adjust the fork height without it. Time will tell whether I'm actually going to adjust travel often enough anyway.trailadvent said:Sexy, be nice if Magura offered an option without the dam remotes
and a coil Wotan similar weight to the Van or 5.5lbs purfect:thumbsup:
I'd be on board!
Nice gmats very nice big rotor no worris:thumbsup: Its a smart move, less adaptors needed, right rotr sizing for peeps on the right fork, for weight its about the braking and fluid control for master cyclinder! cool..DA is sexyyyyy!
I'm including one more picture of the remote.happysv said:Cheers gmats.
Nice pics and I see what you mean about the remote.
It most certainly is removable.trailadvent said:Awsum ny :thumbsup: re travel adjust, have to tickle up the IMP here about that, he told me wasn't removable LOL.
Nice info on the fluid heights! I'm doing that as std with all my sus now since my 66 back in 06 quick break in then take a dump new fluids measure heights, gets the wts rights for my spring rates! I'll be doing Enduro seals in futchur at same time no pissin around, doin it myself helps :thumbsup:
When I get a chance, I'll get a photo of this. It bolts into the front of the fork and "jams" the axle in a clever way to not allow it to back out.unclekittykiller said:
I have the same issue, how do you add the blood to the air chamber?nybike1971 said:The fork is very plush and linear but has consistent midstroke. My issue with the fork right now is a slight top-out thunk when I lift the front end (not if the front wheel is on the ground) which, unfortunately, seems to be a common occurance. I chatted with Magura USA about it and they suggested adding between 0.5ml and 2.5ml of Type 5 Magura suspension blood to the air chamber. This makes the fork a bit more progressive as well, which doesn't hurt in my opinion.
Unfortunately, it does not affect the top-out clunk. It was a miscommunication with Magura USA, they thought I meant a bottom-out clunk ... Adding suspension oil to the air chamber reduces the volume and makes travel more progressive but it doesn't affect top-out clunk at all.CDMC said:I have the same issue, how do you add the blood to the air chamber?
I guess you've tried backing off some rebound, I like fast but too much can cause that, sometimes its just a faulty cartridge! replacement is the only option, cart not fork lolnybike1971 said:Unfortunately, it does not affect the top-out clunk.

I am still working with Magura USA to find a solution, I'll report back if anything I try works out.
OK, as promised, here are the pictures of how the Magura Axle is "locked" into the fork. It uses a 5 mm (hex wrench) jam bolt to pinch the axle. I tend to believe this "jam nut" is a "lawyer safety" device.unclekittykiller said:
I am still waiting on the replacement FCR unit from Magura (they were out of stock and I am currently away from home). When I see the new unit I'll know if they modified the design to fix the problem or not.baltik said:nybike - was your top-out issue ever fixed?
