hi i have some 66 atas and need some help. i have a set of these forks off my stinky air. from the work go they have no kept air but i figure after it took nearly 3 months to get a pair of forks fixed id just keep filling them before i used the bike. which wasnt that often as ive been riding my other bikes more. the prob is that they have started to leak oil out too, something i cant fix. i sent the back and ive been told they need to take out the ata cart and put a spring in, thus making them non adjustable. now as my forks are out of warranty they want 240 to do this. i feel that the forks were a bad design in the first place and i shouldnt have to pay this. now ive been on to a solicitor mate and he said my only option is to find out if there were lots of these problems and then approach the company to see if they will reduce the costs.

so what i am after is lots of people who have had the same prob to post on here so i can get an idea of how common the problem was.

many thanks, dom

What bike and what kind of riding are you doing?
Usually recommend between 20% (more XC) and 33% (DH) sag.

You'll need to know the shock stroke.

Measure eye to eye (from bolt to bolt) on the shock with it uncompressed.

Then sit on the bike in your riding position, feet up and measure again (maybe get someone to help)

The difference between the two measurements is the sag. Work out what %age of the shock stroke has been used up as sag and add/remove air to get to your target sag.

e.g.  50mm stroke shock.

20% desired sag = you want 10mm compression when sat on the bike
30% desired sag = you want 15mm compression when sat on the bike
