I have acquired a used GT XCR 4000 bike equipped with 1998/99 Rock Shox SID front suspension. I have read several books on shock maintenance but see no reference to these shocks. Since my bike is about 10 years old, I need to know how to pump up the shocks and test for serious leaks.
I think these shocks are air shocks but don't know for sure! The shocks are painted blue and are marked SID!
My bike is also equipped with a Cane Creek AD-12 rear shock and I have purchased a pump to pressurize it. I hope to use the pump on the front shocks but don't know where the air valve is located.
Any help is appreciated...
Thanks Chuck! I can't find A theaded hole big enough for the fitting you show. On the top of both shock legs there is a small phillips head screw. I thought that there could be a small place under the screw to insert a football needle but I didn't want to open up the port untilI am sure.
It seems that these older SIDs are totally different than newer ones. I couldn't find any drawings or pictures on the WEB that match my forks.
