I'm trying my hardest to source a part from an old (circa 08') fox float r fork. I obtained it (for free) with the threaded bit the crush washers secure the fork lowers on to missing.

Upon contacting Mojo, they informed me the part name is "base valve assembly" but due to the forks age they no longer carry spares, A 2016-2017 FIT 4 damper would fit in the chasis, but thats £200 I don't wanna spend. I've rang couple of LBS with no avail. Searched ebay etc no avail either. Other than the snapped threaded "bolt" the fork is in great mechanical order, no wear on stanchions etc and would make a lovely long travel knockabout! any ideas where to get the part, any spares in your garage I'd certainly pay a reasonable amount!

    Just look for a dead fork on eBay. There's usually a fee advertised as for spares.
    They make a pretty poor long travel fork due to the flex and crude damper. Drop them down to 120mm and they're decent enough.
  • Friend pm'd me this link, do any of you fork officianados know whether this is corret part?

    techdoc looks similar....
  • RockShox do exploded diagrams of their forks in the spare parts catalog. If you can find something similar for Fox you can find the part number for your fork and see if it's the same as the one in your link above.

    No problem, looking around the part you need to get is not just the bit you screw inside, I believe is whole base valve Inc the silver bit with holes on your pic. Is going to be hard to find, maybe look for used damper?, I have seen somewhere that someone was asking if 2009 base is same but had no response, I could get some pars from mojo for even older models so bit surprised they can't help. Maybe ask them if they can match something from newer models, worth a shot.
  • @ade, they could match it to a newer model, but not for sub £200!

    From your first post my understanding is they could match it but at cost of fitting brand new complete damper @£200, they didn't want to charge you £200 just for bolt :D,

    also found this, you would have to speak to seller what year ect. and compare to yours
