I will clear this up for you guys once and for all, since it took me hours of searching to finally figure it out.

This is the 2012 Manitou Fork Service Manual
http://www.manitoumtb.com/assets/Service%20Manuals/2012%20Service%20Manual.pdf

Page 4 explains how to remove the lowers

Page 13 explains how to remove the compression rod(expert)

Page 14 explains how to adjust the travel by switching the spacers(expert)

Page 23 has Oil Level Chart

Page 25 has an exploded view of the Circus Expert as well as part numbers

I would recommend watching the video and reading the manual a couple times before attempting, both leave out a couple steps that I would hate to forget on a brand new fork.

Well 15 -20 minutes here and there in this god awful thread, with no results other then that damn tech tuesday video. I was waiting on the forks to arrive from CRC, so I couldn't just use the video and open them up. Google is useless if you type in "lower", plus the fact that I don't spend every waking second in front of a f*cking computer screen.

Cheers mate I'm glad you are more sufficient with Google than I, I bet your dick is bigger too?

Hey, I wanted to ask what's the difference between these two forks, maybe someone knows exactly ?!?

these http://goo.gl/0G17Uh and http://goo.gl/ut45Zg

CRC in the title says that it's the same fork and in description everything looks similar, but price differs, so why?



P.S. found out how they differs.. First one is a 100mm version, second one is 80mm version (adjusted internally)

theres a difference in the adjusters in the pics, one has the air assist, not sure about the other one..
my guess is the discriptions wrong the air assist is expert/pro
the other seems to have an adjuster knob.. so at a guess no air???

one friend said, that in the first link there's wrong picture, it's a comp version picture, not expert.

but still it doesn't explain description/title and price difference...
