hi everyone, I got a 2008 Lefty carbon SL...in these days, when I push down the fork, I feel that very rough feeling inside , not smooth...feels like some sand or dirt rolling with the needle bearings, why would this happen? Thanks!;)

Most likely a hole in the boot, or a hard, long, wet ride. Somehow, crap got in there, and is causing the bearings and races to feel bad. If it's grit, it can be cleaned up, and it'll be fine. If it's water, you may need to replace some races and bearings. Either way, sounds like you need a rebuild. :thumbsup:

Thanks for your advice, I just open the boot and have a check of the races.....I see something like rust on the races.....I think that' s the cause of the roughly feel! :madman: So Just change the new races and bearings will be fine? Thanks!;)

Make sure you need the rebuild before ripping it apart. I have an 08 DLR2 with the same rough feeling since brand new. It's fine. Just confirm you need a rebuild before you pay to have work done that doesn't need to be done

You think? Hmmm, I didn't think I was talking to you:confused:
