Proper maintenance and service on suspension products is essential to
ensure consistent performance and longevity of your suspension fork
and/or rear shock.
The information we have gathered below is from each manufacturer's website.
Fox Racing Shocks Service Intervals
To extend the service life of your FOX fork or shock, the best product
maintenance plan you can follow is cleaning the product exterior after
each and every ride or race. Use mild soapy water, a very light pressure
water spray to rinse, and wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth.
CAUTION: Do not use any solvents or de-greasers, as these products can
damage the shock's exterior finish or its anodized parts.
Do not spray water directly on the seal/upper tube junction. Never use a high pressure washer on your FOX fork or rear shock.
When dirt dries onto the fork upper tube or shock body, it will chafe
and damage the wiper seal. With a damaged seal, dirt works its way into
the fork or shock. Simple, periodic maintenance can greatly extend the
service life of your FOX fork or shock.
Tip: If you tend to ride in extreme conditions frequently (dry and
dusty, wet and muddy, downhill racing, winter riding, etc.),
correspondingly the service procedure items should be done more
