Manitou stanchion sponge oil ring...


Recommended Posts





I've got a Manitou Black Elite 120 fork fitted to my rig, and I'm heading off on holiday later this week.




The right stanchion has had a problem almost since new in that the sponge ring that sits inside the mini-boot and oils the stanchion keeps riding up, out of the boot.




Presumably because it's getting too dry. This fork has been distributor-serviced since new. I've never had a problem with the other stanchion's ring.




I'm not going to get the time to go past the bike shop before I head out on holi' later this week, but I do have miscellaneous oils/grease at Home.




What should I use to oil this ring and keep the damned thing in place?




Thanks, Nic
