Is this a problem? I ride horizontally most of the time, but I store it vertically. Should I have this checked, or is it normal?
So, is there a maintenance schedule where we have to eventually add oil to the shock?goodvibe said:I have an RP23 and oil residue appears on the shock body after I ride, especially in the heat. I contacted Fox to see if it is normal. They said that it is okay for a little oil to appear and to clean it off after each ride. They also said that you should start worrying when the oil doesn't appear after a ride.
So, authorized service is needed every 100 riding hours. I didn't realize that I'd need to pay a shop to service the shock every year. For reference, I never had my 04 NRS1 serviced and it never leaked.goodvibe said:If you click here, you can see the service intervals posted by Fox.
