900RR Rebound Adjuster woes

Hi Guys,

Was wondering if I could get your opinions on the state of the rebound adjusters on my 900RR. When I first picked up the bike all the suspension settings were different on just about every component, not even the forks were adjusted the same. In the course of resetting the rebound adjuster the fitting just sheared off (as can be seen in the pics). At the time I should of tweaked that it was hard to turn and was indicative of a problem but I'm a noob .

Long story short I've never serviced the forks (and I don't think the previous owner ever did either) which seems clearly in order and I'm wondering what it is going to take to fix the rebound adjuster. Am I better off just trying to source some 2nd hand forks and clean them up or just replace the whole rebound damper component?

Sorry if this has been covered before but I've been struggling to find anyone who has had a similar issue via googling.

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide!

P.S. plus a stupid question, is there a better tool than a flat blade screw driver for adjusting these things or ??

Oh no thats a shame.. You have to be very careful with the adjusters.. Long blade screwdriver normally does the trick when they are moving freely.

I would try and find some new fork internals rather than replace the whole thing.. Ebay perhaps you could by a slightly bent leg cheap and nick the parts you need?

+1 for some second hand internals.

I have just finished rebuilding my forks and the adjusters were really tight until I could get in and clean them up and drop a little bit of silicone spray in there

Sounds like a good excuse to get a smart new re-valve by a professional. I've got full K Tech front internals in mine and a Nitron Track rear shock. Getting smart suspension is really beneficial

Similar story , resetting the suspension to standard after buying the bike , the rear shock rebound screw was tight but a bit of silicon spray loosed it up . But all it does is turn turn turn and not seat ? Any advise?
