Last night I was adjusting the sag/psi on my 2007 Fox F100 RLC. As I was releasing air from the fork a little bit of oil came out through the shraeder valve. Is this normal thing or a bad sign? I apologize if this is a stupid question but it's the first time that this has happened to me.

You'll be fine, this happens to some guy's.

It's nothing to be embarrassed about.

But yes it happens, it should be all right.

So you're saying I SHOULD return the viagra? Thanks for the quick response. I looked at the Fox website and it says that there is a small amount of oil in the air chamber but I just wanted to make sure.

yes its normal there is oil on top of the piston to keep the O-ring lubed. This is why you should take the top cap off every once in a while and make sure there is still lubricant there (fox float fluid) 15wt can be used in a pinch.
