No thats fine.
It’s not leaking, that’s the Fox float fluid used to fill the pores in the hard coating. It reduces the surface wear. After assembly several drops are put into the air can, which atomize internally under hard use.I only have this Giant Trance bike for 2 days, only riding in my neighborhood to set up the shocks...
Is this rear shock leaking oil?
You don’t add any float fluid and it isn’t used until the shock seals are replaced under periodic service. The float fluid goes inside the shock can and is under air pressure. Some of the lubricant will make it past the seals under normal use, the amount will decrease as the seals fully bed in, usually after few hours. Float fluid is very viscous and leaves a thin film on the sliding surfaces filling in micro pores and and imperfections. If the shock is holding air pressure you are good to go. Just wipe any dirt and oil off the shaft and go ride. Afterwards wipe it down again so any accumulated contaminants do not cause wear. Then rinse and repeat.So sorry for the stupid question, I wiped the fluid this morning, and went for a test run... it's wet again... so I guess I shouldn't have wiped it.
can I buy this and put a few drops?
