Is it a new bladder or the original? When they get old, the ribs that seal the bladder to the reservoir body get old and kind of smashed down. Like a piston back up o-ring does. When that happens, it'll leak around the res. cap.

just check, where the N2 goes to. Either it goes into the shock an mixes with the oil => Just open the shock and check the oil

or it goes outside as rks1 desribed or via the mentioned sharder valve => Put the whole shock under water and watch for bubbles.

I have checked the valve and have sprayed soapy water around the cap so me thinks it's bleeding back into the shock body:foul:
