Just a quick note to anyone who is thinking of doing this, i replaced the oil in the legs, re oiled the stanchion sponges etc as per the 30 hour reccomended service. Cost me £32 for enough of the proper stuff to do this 5 times, so £6.40 per service. Took 25 mins and the forks are noticably smoother afterwards. Versus the cost of your LBS or MOJO doing it its a no-brainer and you dont have to be without your bike for days. So if yiu have been umming and aahing about it, defo do it. :D
My biggest fear is that should I crash, burn and die, my Wife would sell my stuff based upon what I told her I paid for it.

    So what model and year were the forks?

    2012 32rl DRCV (obviously Trek!). But I think the principles are the same for all models, just need to use the right oil and volumes as per the fox service website.
