V2 Dropper Quick Grease Instructions
- Strap wrench
- Waterproof grease (ie. Slickoleum, Slick Honey)
- lint free cloth
This easy service can be completed on the bike. Depending on the conditions in which you ride, this service can be performed as regular as every 25 hours of riding. Keeping you upper bushing and dust wiper clean and greased will greatly prolong the life of your dropper.
STEP 1: COMPRESS DROPPER & LOOSEN MID CAP ASSEMBLY
Wipe any grit or debris away from the dust wiper (8b) and upper tube (7). Compress the dropper post into a mid travel position.
Unscrew the mid cap assembly (8) by hand or using a strap wrench and slide it up towards the seatpost head.
STEP 2: REMOVE & CLEAN UPPER BUSHING
Trigger remote to release dropper to full extension. The upper bushing (9) will come up out of the lower tube (12) with the upper tube (7). Once you can access the upper bushing, remove it from the upper tube. Clean the bushing, inside and out, then clean the upper tube below the mid cap assembly (8).
STEP 3: GREASE & INSTALL UPPER BUSHING
Grease the upper bushing (9), inside and out, with your light suspension grease. You can also apply some grease to the upper tube (7) just above the lower tube (12). Slide upper bushing pack over upper tube. Slide the mid cap assembly (8) down the upper tube, pushing the upper bushing until it is sitting partailly into the lower tube.
STEP 4: COMPRESS DROPPER & TIGHTEN MID CAP ASSEMBLY
Trigger the remote and compress the dropper. This action should pull the upper bushing (9) further into the lower tube (12). You can now thread the mid cap assembly (8) onto the lower tube. Start the threads by hand and once it is hand tight, snug it up with your strap wrench.
NOTE: If there is more grease than necessary, it will weep out through the dust wiper (8b) after some cycling. This is normal. If you do notice any excess grease above or around the mid cap assembly (8) be sure to wipe it away so it doesnt attract unwanted grit. This weeping of excess grease should only last a ride or two.
Congratulations, you have now successfully completed the V2 Dropper Quick Grease service.
