I am having issues with my post returning, it seems after no more than 2-3 months I have to pull the bugger apart, regas/reoil everything (which is a real PITA to do), is this just a **** post? I have to admit, it's the best TYPE of product I've bought for my bike, but I am not so sure as to whether it was actually the best make/model.
Basically, when it has ANY air in it, and the release button is depressed and then released, the main valve at the top of the post leaks rather quickly, it is definitely an audible leak. This only starts to happen once I cycle the air/oil through a number of times (I.e. > 10). There is evidence of this continual leak in the area over the weeks/months with a sludgy/oil buildup present.
Now, I must admit that I am using thin oil (5wt) as opposed to whatever is recommended, but I really don't think that this was be the cause. I think I may have to return it.
Can anyone confirm if I would have to return it? Considering dumping it eventually and trying something else if it continues to stuff up.
