Service de manchon d'air de FLOAT Fox est facile. Les fournitures sont disponibles à partir de Fox.
Pouvez-vous tordre le bouchon d'une bouteille de bière? Si oui, vous pouvez effectuer l'entretien du manchon d'air routine qui 's nécessaires pour maintenir une bonne bosse - performances d'amortissement des chocs d'air Fox de flotter. Chocs pour les motoneiges se fait sauter avec glace, neige, la saleté, des roches et d'autres débris qui, pour les chocs de flotteur, pourraient leur faire perdre la pression d'air. Ces neuf étapes faciles - à l'origine publiés dans le numéro de Janvier 2009 du magazine Snow Goer le magazine - expliquent comment enlever le manchon d'air, nettoyer et lubrifier, et remonter. Ce service est différent d'un choc reconstruire, ce qui nécessite le démontage complet, et des outils spéciaux et de connaissances pour changer l'huile et de charger l'azote.

Étape 1: Retirer Châssis Douilles

Avec les chocs retiré du châssis et dans un étau, utiliser un tournevis plat pour soulever les douilles de châssis en caoutchouc sur chaque choc - ce qui permet la clairance de sorte que le manchon d'air peut être retiré et réparé (le manchon d'air est le plus grand tube).

Step 2: If you can’t remove the air sleeve by hand, use a strap wrench like this one. They are available at auto parts stores.

Step 2: Remove Air Sleeve

Twist off the cap from the Schrader valve (the valve you use to adjust air pressure) and relieve the air pressure. Now that the air spring has been discharged, grab hold of the air sleeve with a hand and turn it counter-clockwise to unthread it from the shock assembly. If the sleeve cannot be removed by hand, use a strap wrench to loosen the sleeve. Twist the sleeve until it’s free from the shock, and then slide it off.

Step 3: Remove Sleeve Parts

With the sleeve in hand, remove the blue plastic ice scraper, the rubber seal and the Teflon-coated aluminum bushing. Make note of the order and orientation for correct reassembly. The scraper, bushing and seal will be greasy, and this is where debris collects. If Fox FLOAT shocks go too long without service, the dirt and debris could push through and damage the main air seal and cause the air spring to fail.

Step 4: Use a shop towel to clean the bore of the air sleeve.

Step 4: Clean Shock Parts

Wipe the scraper, seal and bushing with a shop towel. It’s safe to use a product like brake cleaner to clean the parts, but it usually isn’t necessary. Inspect the parts and replace them if they have nicks or cuts. Now push a rag all the way through the air sleeve to clean the bore and inspect it for damage – an airborne rock could have dented the tube and damaged the seal or O-ring. New sleeves and other parts for snowmobile, ATV and mountain bike shocks are available from the Fox service center in Baxter, Minnesota.
 
 
 
 

Step 5: Install the scraper with its tapered end facing up.

Step 5: Reassemble The Air Sleeve

The air sleeve is ready for reassembly now that the sleeve and its components are clean. First, slide the aluminum bushing into the sleeve until it bottoms out against the lip. Next, slide in the black scraper with its tapered end facing up. Each seal sets into a step so this is difficult to screw up, but double-check your work.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Step 6: Fill the gap between the scraper and seal with low-temp, synthetic grease.

Step 6: Lube The Parts

The parts need to be lubricated with a synthetic, low-temp grease now that they’re in place. Fox specifies a product called Slick Honey that’s available at sporting goods stores – it’s used for maintenance on paintball guns. Fill the gap between the scraper and seal with grease. Air sleeve maintenance is complete after this step.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Step 7: The two white wear bands should be cleaned with a shop towel and coated with low-temp, synthetic grease.

Step 7: Clean The Wear Bands

With the shock still in a vise, remove both white wear bands and the aluminum bearing assembly that holds the wear bands – it’s not recommended to remove the black rubber air piston seal. Clean the wear bands with a shop towel; clean the black rubber piston seal, too. Reinstall the wear bands and coat them with Slick Honey. The shock and air sleeve are ready to be reunited.

Step 8: Install Air Sleeve

Before installing the air sleeve on the shock, pour a few drops of Fox FLOAT Fluid into the cap (you removed the air sleeve from this cap in the first step). This special oil helps the shock work smoothly. As you slide the sleeve over the bearing assembly, make sure the wear bands pinch closed. There will be friction, but it should slide in place smoothly and easily. With the sleeve reinstalled, cycle it up and down a few times to coat the bore with grease and ensure smooth operation. Now use a shop towel to wipe off the excess grease from the sleeve’s exterior and spread it inside the sleeve.

Step 9: Install Shock Cap

Twist the air sleeve into the shock until it’s hand tight, then use a strap wrench to tighten it one-eighth of a turn. Reinstall the chassis bushings, wipe off the shock assembly’s exterior with a shop towel and refill the chamber with air to your desired setting.
