First off this thread is not to bash or put down the DT Nude shock in any way, I just want to give other users a heads up. I have an 07 Spark that is my only bike, gets a ton of use, and is raced 10-15 times a year. Starting a week ago, the shock started to make a sqeaking noise that I hadn't heard before. I didn't think too much of it since it's been awefully wet around here lately and figured I would put a drop of low viscosity lube around the barell and move on. Well to cut to the chase, within a couple days, the shock isn't holding air. I'm losing about 1psi a minute when it's fully loaded, this tapers down as the pressure comes down to about a 20 psi average per hour over a few hours (basically, unrideable unless you want to stop very frequently to top it off). After quite a few calls around to various Scott and non Scott dealers the shock has to go back to DT for service and I'm looking at about a 2 week turnaround (best case) between shipping and service work before I'm back up and running. Being mid season this is an unfortunate and stressful inconvenience. The word of advice that I'd like to pass on to other users of this shock is keep up with your preventative maintenance and have this shock serviced in the offseason annually. When it goes, it goes and you'll be out of luck.
