Hello Everyone,

With local shops being closed I am having hard time trying to figure out what parts I need for major suspension service or rebuild. My bike is https://www.specialized.com/us/en/enduro-expert-evo/p/23687?color=36278-23687 in large frame and 100% stock. If you know what exactly kits I need please let me know bellow. I would like to rebuild suspension, but hope to at least do major 200h service... depends what parts I can get.


Long story. I have time and desire to learn my bike. I can bring it into the shop for service and I know money and time wise it is more efficient but I would like to do it myself to learn!!! I got it used in very good shape, regular serviced in local shop and ridden for a year for maybe 100 - 150 hours. Ridden DH but on the beginner level. I would like to service my front fork and rear shock myself. Preferably learn how to rebuild it. I am absolutely lost on Specialized web site trying to figure out what exactly kits \ parts I need. Specialized refereed me to local shop that is closed due to COVID-19. So I cannot get answers. All what I need is part numbers so I can order stuff and tools online and find videos on how to get it done.


Thank you very much in advance.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but that shock isnt user serviceable (tooling costs are well into 4 figures) and there aren't many parts available for those forks. You could do a lowers service with these:

You'd want the 36mm option.

Getting hold of damper seals might be an issue

Servicing the suspension is user serviceable, however, cjkj1999 is right about parts being hard to get. The minimum tools are still spendy, just not 4 figures spendy. If you are in the US, I work with a guy here that has better knowledge of suspension than most anyone else I've met.
