Your bicycle needs to be serviced regularly and with certain components, like suspension, the service intervals are based on the manufacturers’ specifications.

Servicing your components when required ensures optimal performance and less costs over the long-run. If you don’t service when you should, there is a knock-on effect which increases the costs exponentially.

Below is a useful overview of service intervals for SRAM and RockShox suspension products.

Fox also recommends mountain bike service intervals based on the type of suspension and model.

SR Suntour recommends servicing your fork in 50-hour service intervals. As an example here is a basic service manual for a SR Suntour suspension fork.
