Something freaky going on

Recommended Posts

I turned my bike upside down to take out the base valve and do a re-valve, and over the course of about 10 minutes the oil drained out of the cartridge. The top of the oil was near the base valve when I opened it up, and all the oil was gone 10 minutes later.

My first thought was that something was holding the mid-valve open, and being lazy I figured I would just ride and let it work itself out. So I rode and next time I checked it was the same problem. So I took apart the cartridge and couldn't find anything wrong. Has anybody else had this happen?

What you experianced is normal. When you get done just pump them back up or ride it and everything will be ok.

It did ride fine. I didn't notice any problems. My other fork doesn't do this though. Is something wrong with that one? Does this have to do with the rebound adjuster circuit? I guess that there is a by-pass valve that the oil could leak through.
