the travel is adjusted internally, not via a dial on the fork. My regular riding buddy, has an orange E2 with an axel super. He is not technically good, but is going to bring the manual over (there is nothing on the manitou/ answer web site). I'll check the manual. If it's easy I'll post the instructions, if its tricky I'll post my MSN, and mail u the scanned relavent pages. It may take a couple of days as we both work irregular shifts, if u find the answer before post it, so I don' t have to go through the phaff of scanning etc.
Why did I pick a s hiit name?
the manual that comes with the fork is not that impressive, it gives a list of 5 steps and about 3 photo shots of the procedure. Its not desperatley, but dosen't look to tricky, you would need to see the pictures to go with the instructions.
Let me know if this is the same as the web manual, if not and you think it will be usefull to you let me know and I'll scan them in to my computor and post my hotmail address and if u send a blank mail I'll post them back, or if you,ve got an MSN that you don't mind posting I'll just mail the to you
Still haven't figured out how to adjust travel on the Manitou Axel fork. After taking the fork apart, the pictures don't match what I have in my hand. I don't see anything that looks like a "clip" to move. Anybody figure it out yet?
Originally posted by staten I really appreciate you helping me. The only thing is that on the side with the spring, there is a white plastic rod and you can't take it out. Only the side I have taken the picture of will come off.
You need to figure out how to work on the other side. The travel adjustment is not on that side. You will now need to refill the fork with fluid on that side or you will get no rebound damping when you put it back together. Whats holding the other side together? Is it a snap ring?
I currently have exactly the same model forks as you (axel supers) - 03 (the grey ones). I have exactly the same problem with regards the instructions not matching and fig 10. doesnt look the same as the part ive removed. I have a feeling that another part is needed to be bought to replace the part currently in the shock. Again the clip on fig 10 must be from a different model of shock.
If anyone finds out how to get the shock converted to 100mm, let me know. thanks
