So, I purchased a Rockshox Lyrik secondhand (in great shape or so I thought)), and I decided to give it a rebuild, and I've found that the bottom out bumpers aren't stuck in the bottom of the fork lowers.

I'm talking about these things

(that isn't the actual Lyrik one, but basically it's the same piece)

If I tip the fork upside down, they just rattle throughout the leg?

Does anyone know where these are actually supposed to go/fit in?

I don't have another fork for reference.

Thanks,

Cody

They just sit in the lowers, one in each leg. Nothing holds them in place or anything like that. When the fork is assembled, spring and damper shafts keep them from moving around to much or getting twisted around. Sounds like everything was/is fine with your fork.

Mullen,

Thanks for the response, but even with the fork fully assembled, they shake around (and move throughout the leg).

Although, I given it a real testing, in a "driveway test" the fork appears to function fine.

I'm looking at this part diagram of the Lyrik, and I can't figure out what holds the bumpers down there.

Any ideas?
