RockShox's Maxle Lite DH, used on their BoXXer fork lineup, requires only one tool to remove or install, but can still be a mystery to some. Inside we show you how it works and how to properly use it.
Some pointers before you begin...
• Although I take the Maxle apart to show you how it functions, there is no need for you to loosen it off any more than need to remove it from the fork.
• Be sure not to set the Maxle down in the dirt after removing it from the fork - installing a dirty Maxle will make removing it down the road harder. Set it somewhere clean when it's out of the bike.
• Grease is your friend. Apply a thin layer to the Maxle before installation, taking the time to wipe off any excess grease that may collect around the fork lowers.
• Never over tighten the Maxle, which is anything more than the recommended eight clicks. That is all that is required.What's needed: 6mm hex key
