Shock pump - replacement seals?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys


My BBB shock pump is no longer pumping.  Suspect it is the seal inside the bit that screws on to the shock. 


Does anyone know where I can get replacement seals?


Seems a pity to have to buy a new pump for the sake of a R3 seal.

Dave, just about all seals nowadays are O-rings, which are readily available. It is a matter of taking the thing apart, measuring the O-ring and getting a replacement.


Don't expect replacement parts via the agent though. He/she/it seems to think they can import pumps without stocking spares. I've had similar issues with my BBB floor pump.

On the way home yesterday I passed by two bike shops, a car spares shop, a major hardware chain store and finally got a likely looking o'ring from the little hardware store around the corner. Doesn't quite seal the same as the orig seal (which was slightly cylindrical rather than a ring), but seems to do the job ok...
