WARNINGThe 15mm axle should only be used with the 15mm axle adapters and 15mm axle slit shims. DO NOT use the 15mm axle without the 15mm axle adapters. DO NOT use the 15mm axle with the 20mm axle slit shims. Failure to use the proper adapters and axle slit shims with the 15mm axle can damage the fork dropouts which can lead to a loss of control of the bicycle which can result in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

WARNING: Never attempt to modify axle slit shims or axle adapters. Modification of these parts can lead to improper installation which can lead to a loss of control of the bicycle which can result in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

WARNING: When using the 15mm axle slit shims, make sure to install the notched shim in the rider's left dropout. Failure to install the 15mm axle slit shims in their correct locations may result in damage to the dropout that can lead to a loss of control of the bicycle which can result in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

WARNINGThe 20mm axle slit shims must be used when using the 20mm axle. Leaving the 20mm axle slit shims out when using the 20mm axle can allow for dropout damage to occur, which can lead to a loss of control of the bicycle that can result in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

WARNING: Never attempt to force any parts to fit. Doing so may result in dropout damage, which can lead to a loss of control of the bicycle that can result in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

WARNING: Modification, improper service, or use of aftermarket replacement parts with FOX forks and shocks may cause the product to malfunction, resulting in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. DO NOT modify any part of a fork or shock, including the fork brace (lower leg cross brace), crown, steerer, upper and lower leg tubes, or internal parts, except as instructed herein. Any unauthorized modification may void the warranty, and may cause failure or the fork or shock, resulting in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

WARNING: Make sure that your wheels and wheel axles are securely fastened before riding, in accordance with the bicycle owner's manual instructions. Either wheel separating out of the bicycle frame may cause a crash and result in property damage, SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

WARNING: As dirt and debris can accumulate between the fork axle openings, always check and clean these areas before installing the wheel. Improper hub and axle installation can result in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

WARNING: FOX products should be installed by a professional bicycle service technician, in accordance with FOX installation specifications. If you have any doubt whether or not you can properly and safely install your fork, then do not attempt installing it. Improperly installed forks can fail, causing the rider to lose control resulting in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
