Hi all

I've sent my forks off to Maxton to have new cartridges fitted. Do I need to consider anything (or are there any tips) or refitting them? I'm thinking of alignment etc i.e. is it best to tighten them once the wheel is fitted to ensure they are aligned before tightening?

Apparently the most important thing when replacing the wheel is to do the axle up but not the pinch bolts on the bottom. Then compress the front suspension without using the brakes (push on the top triple clamp) a few times. This will align the forks and you can then tighten the pinch bolts.

Not as simple as I thought then!
