I have never had to deal w getting new gaskets etc. they are made out of a rubber material that is made to be re-used. and even if it broke I would just chuck some silicone or yamahbond in there and call it a day.
As far as getting internal parts for the vboxx its not easy.. Your best bet is to get them from stealth or find someone w spares. Even then its a pain in the ass...Thankfully the internals of that thing are pretty strong. Interesting note, some of the internal parts are hand stamped with construction dates and initials on them...
But am I wrong or are you the one who needed a new gear?
You are correct sir! so trying to get parts through Suntour was basically getting kicked repeatedly in the junk...painful and useless... Stealth was better, So my situation was a broekn tooth on a gear. initially I got the broken gear tooth welded up and I shaped the tooth back to the point that you couldn't tell it from the non welded. While all of that was going on I was dealing w stealth who in turn was dealing with Suntour. Eventually (months later) I got some parts from stealth because they happen to have a Vboxx kicking around.
How the Vboxx repair is technically supposed to work is you take the vboxx off the bike, send it to stealth who sends it to suntour (in Taiwan) they fix it and send it back to you. P.S. you wont know how much it will cost until they see it. I did not want to send mine overseas so i was just going to fix it myself and I happen to get lucky that stealth had some spare parts kicking around.. I wouldn't count on it though..
In your position I would take it apart, see if it needs anything, if it does get in touch w stealth..
