Hello there,

I just replaced my SR Suntour SF7-XCM fork with a Rock Shox Tora 318 Coil. I've had the Suntour on my hardrock for the past ten months since I got it and apart from wiping away dirt deposits near the seals never did any maintenance on it. I'm just starting to get into biking and have read that you should lubricate the stanchions occasionally and I believe I saw Teflon-based lube mentioned. Could someone direct me to the product that I would need to perform such lubrication?

Tri-flow works, but it disappears fast so you should probably hit it with the stuff before every ride.

There's also a foam seal under the first seal designed to hold oil to keep the seals moist, if you could get your hands on some fork oil you could stick the end of a zip tie into the seal and drip some fork oil down the gap. This would be a more long term solution.
