There's a small amount of oil in the positive air chamber to help seal and lube the piston. It's normal to lose a little bit when the pump is connected. You only need to worry when oil does not spray out of the valve --- it means the chamber is empty and requires service.

look at SRAM website? There also was a book on how to overhall RS SIDS, its a must have for SID owners. It will also have tips on how to set up your fork.

yes i have had a look at this site but it mentions nothing for my fork which is the 2009. Only mentions earlier products.

I know it says 2008, but this pertains to your fork: http://www.sram.com/_media/techdocs/95-4015-022-000%20print.pdf

Check this out too: http://forums.mtbr.com/blog.php?do=showentry&e=1646&enum=1 - It's a Reba tuning guide, but they are both dual air and use the same dual air assemblies.

It really will come down to you getting on the trail and adjusting it to your liking. The only tuning guide you need is the RS one, to show you the basics(the link above, or the book that came with your fork). It comes down to experimentation.

Oh i am sorry, only i thought this was a mountain bike forum not a wordsworth forum.
I feel sorry for any one who feels it is necessary to inflict this level of pedanticism upon a stranger.

I don't see whats warranting your level of *****iness. It may seem like he is nagging at you, but he is just trying to help, because if you walk up to a bike shop and say, hey, I bought some new rock shox forks for my bike, can you help me set them up, they aren't going to take you very seriously and it will make a bad first impression. Way to be mature about it by the way, very impressive.

Enough of this...

People in Britain call a fork a "set of forks", "forks" or "front shock". They also call a cassette a "cluster", a derailleur a "mech" and so on.

If you know what they mean, please save the English lesson and go straight to the answer.

This forum reaches many places in the world. Let's keep it that way.

Thank you.
