If you have any doubt whether or not you can properly service your FOX product, then DO NOT attempt it. Improperly serviced products can fail, causing the rider to lose control resulting in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

DO NOT puncture, incinerate or crush any portion of a FOX suspension product. DO NOT attempt to disassemble any portion of a FOX suspension product, unless expressly instructed to do so by the applicable FOX technical documentation, and then ONLY while strictly adhering to all FOX instructions and warnings in that instance.

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.

Any unauthorized modification may void the warranty, and may cause failure or the fork or shock, resulting in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

***NOTE: The full rebuild below shows complete service of the GRIP2 damper which is generally not needed as part of an annual service. Basic cartridge maintenance including oil replacement and cleaning is generally all that is needed for the GRIP2 damper unless experiencing problems***

Note: Bottom nut torque for the Grip2 cartridge has been increased from 80in-lb to 110 in-lb (12.4 Nm). Please use this torque specification rather than the Grip2 bottom nut torque listed in the video below.
