Any damage or issues resulting from improper service will not be covered by warranty. If you have a shock still in its original warranty period and do not wish to void your warranty, please contact an authorized Cane Creek service center.
This service covers changing stroke ONLY on a new DBair IL shock. As o-rings are considered new as part of this service, they will not be replaced. If this stroke change is being done on an older shock, a full 100 hour service is recommended.
The stroke change procedure is the same for Standard and Trunnion mount shocks. A Trunnion shock is used in these photos.
No service kits required. Please consult your authorized Cane Creek service center or contact us at our Cane Creek Support Center to detemine which stroke reduction parts are needed for specific stroke changes.
