[QUOTE=JimDeertay;702157]I am not following you

Are you saying you are trying to remove the inner chamber from the Fork Cap Assembly ?? , or are you unscrewing the entire fork cap assembly out and it wont come out of the outer tube and the tube wont drop freely??

If you are trying to pull the entire inner chamber out (by unscrewing the large outside cap , not the 32mm inner part where your adjuster is), then once you unscrew it you should be able to just lower the outer tube easily and tip it over and drain the oil

You should be pulling out whats on top in this pic (the Cartridge)not whats in the middle of the pic where the arrow is pointed(the Inner Chamber)

Jim you are correct I'm trying to pull the cartridge ( as shown on the top of your pic) and the only way I can get it to even come up is by compressing my forks , shouldn't it just slide out being it's all the way lose? I have not touched the inner chamber ( shown in the middle of your pic)

Yes it should , if you watch the video posted above by noonersracing it pretty much takes you thru the process , when you unscrew the cap the outer tube should just slide down easily

Does it seem like when you slide down the outer tube that the assembly is also compressing even though it is completely unscrewed ??

If so then i would think the inner chamber seal is bad , if that is the case then you need to screw the assembly back on temporarily so you dont dump oil all over (just hand tight) and flip the fork over and unscrew the rebound nut (i use a electric impact so i dont have to hassle with clamping the fork down , but you can use the axle to hold the fork lug if you dont have a vice or a electric impact) using a socket , if you dont have a holder , then use a (i believe) 13mm open end wrench to hold the rod up (just below the locknut) you will have to really compress the fork so use all your weight to hold the fork compressed (holding on to the axle to do this) while attaching the wrench to hold the rod , then take a wrench and loosen the locknut and remove the rebound nut , , using the nut D shaped end stick it in the rod and slightly tilt it and grab the rod and pull it out , then compress the fork so you can remove the wrench holding the rod (you will have to use a lot of pressure to compress the fork) then let the fork extend till the rod is down a ways , you may even have to pull up a bit on the fork tube to keep the rod away from the nut , then hand screw the rebound nut back on till its snug , then flip the fork and unscrew the assembly and remove the entire assembly , i will bet you will find the rod is sucked down in the assembly , this will confirm the inner seal is bad

If the seal is bad and you need a step by step to replace it , i can explain it to you in detail

(UPDATE) hey guys I finally found the time today to mess with my bike, so I tore the right side fork leg apart and I found the oil was very dirty ( looked like metal shavings) but everything seemed to be fine on the inside to my amazement and I also found the fork only had around 270ml of the 350ml of oil in it so I tore them all the way down and bled the push rod then put the specified amount of oil according to the service Manuel witch is 350ml by the way anyway after I put the fork leg back together and Tryed it out pushing it up and down on the floor it DOES NOT feel like a frking pogo stick anymore so I plan on tearing the left leg off next Saturday and rebuilding it myself.. Also Told the guy that rebuilt them I fixed the forks myself and I did not appreciate doing a half a*s job ..
