Already tried that, thus the need to send it in.damion said:The float air sleeve is user serviceable. All you need is a $10.00 seal kit, some slick honey, and 1/2 hour. The video on how to rebuild the air sleeve is available at www.foxracingshox.com
Did you check the scrhader valve? These come loose sometimes. They are the same valves that are used in car tires. A simple $2 valve core tool from the auto parts store for the should fix it. There are really only two possiblities with air leaks, the seals and the valve. Could the leaking around the outside of the valve too. Pump it up to 300 psi and dunk it in water to check for bubbles.Brandon said:Already tried that, thus the need to send it in.
The teflon on the body is very worn, I contacted PUSH and right now they aren't able to repair/replace that part so it's on it's way to FOX.kgardnez said:I definately recommend the PUSH industries work. I upgraded my shock earlier this year and I can't say enough about it.
Mine might have been aggravated by a broken linkage a couple months back (side loads) it got into the service Dept at FOX this morning. Turned out I was looking for the wrong size.. my FSR uses a 6.0x1.25 shock actually ('02 FSR stumpy pro M4)... good thing I didn't win that ebay auction. The teflon was completely gone in a couple spots (bare aluminum) Anyways the stratos will go on my RM pipeline in place of the vanilla.Mud Muncher said:I just had the same problem as well. Apparently on my Fox Rl I had some slight scrapes in the shaft body that every time the suspension was active, it would lose a bit of air. Seals made no difference in that aspect. Fox had to put a new shaft on and good as new.
Got my fox back today so I'm good, thanks though.Vulcan said:Hey, how about a Cane Creek AD-5? I have one I would sell for cheap if you would like.
