Dual cartridge fork upgrade on 2017 X Trainer


Doing the dual cartridge fork upgrade on my 2017 XTrainer and have one more question ! I am almost done. Please refer to the picture. Usually fork oil quantity is via cc's. I am thinking they are saying pour fork oil in to 105mm from the top with the spring in. Anyone else think different?

  1. Yes they’re giving you the height from the top which is more accurate if it’s maybe not been a full rebuild and there could be some oil left in there.

  2. ^^ Exactly what Derek said. Measuring air gap is the most accurate way. Do they tell you to pump it a few times first to make sure there are no bubbles trapped in the system?

  3. Do you have a link to the English instructions? I think I saw Italian ones but not English.

  4. thanks for all the help everyone ! I have now completed the dual cartridge upgrade ! Unfortunately, like I mentioned before, I am recovering from ACL surgery so it will be some time before I can test it. 🙁 . (big sigh)

  5. Here are the instructions if anyone else needs them…Bear in mind that they have the forks reversed from what I am used to. I always thought it was as if you are sitting on the bike. The left side is actually the right fork in the instructions
