I know the Dorado sometimes would need all air let out and then be fully compressed and then lifted back up and then re-filled with air. Not sure that will help....

Just tried that. Didn't work. The first two inches of travel, you can literally just slide the fork up and down, no resistance.

Guess I get to take it apart and invoke all sorts of bad mechanical mojo.:shocked:

So Manitou sent me this guy to fix the problem, which was cool of them.


But once I pulled the fork apart, there was this little white plastic spacer plops out too. I took it to Suspension Experts and they said there isn't a way to just replace that. It's something that sits embedded in the stanchion below the air piston and if it's broken, you just have to get all new uppers.

Seriously??? :banghead:
