I rebuilt my '11 Reba RLT Ti recently....I have done it before as well as regular servicings......

The first ride or 2 the fork feels great. However, after that the fork seems to get stiff about 1/2 way into its travel. Checked the air pressure and both +/- are right where I set them.....I am not getting any air migration.

Too much fluid in the Motion Control?

Thoughts?

I tore it down again today, and checked the Motion Contol side....was low...emptied it out and refilled to 133 mL per the tech manual.

Have you checked that damping oil isn't leaking into the lower leg on the RH side? It's a well-known issue and would explain why the oil level is low on the MoCo side and limit travel at the same time. Fix is a replacement o-ring seal.
