    Both ends should be chamfered.

    Before you start make sure the tubing cutter will accommodate the 32mm/1 1/4" tube. I borrowed one from the hydraulic shop at work.

    Don,

    Have 2 qts on hand. Pour @ 1/2 qt in and pump the air out by working the damper rod up and down to get the air out. Collapse the tube all the way and set the oil level to 120mm from the top without the spring and spacer tube.

    Both legs combined will take a little more than 1 Qt total, so start with 2.

    Old thread I know, but should the damping rod, be also pushed down as far as it will go or level with the inner tube ??

    Hi,

    According to the Hyperpro Manual, I think Yes, although I agree it is'nt 100% clearly described.

    pg 9 chapter 10 and 11

    I did it with damperrod compressed to the bottom, This allows also easier measurement of the level. I ride the bike every day , and it is fine.
    to bleed out the air, make sure you not just pump the fork....it is the damperrod that you have to slowly move up and down until all air is removed. Watch out , it will spit oil....how do I know  :001:
