    2017 Fox DPX2 leaking?

    anyone with a 2017 or the DPX2 shock having trouble with it leaking oil? Every now and again i seem to notice a liquid that seems to be coming from the top of the shock running down my down tube. It looks clear on the frame (silver turq) but when i touch it i get black on my hands (but bike is dusty?) so i cant tell if its water from washing or what.

    Any thoughts?

    I have had leaking issues with my new DPX2 as well. Initially it was fine, but I removed the air can to take out a volume spacer. After reinstalling the air can, I went for a ride and all seemed fine. Next morning I found something similar to what you are describing... Fox suspension fluid had dripped onto and run down the down tube. It appears to be coming from where the air can threads onto the shock.

    The air can seems to simply thread back onto the shock. I can't see where I could have damaged or pinched a seal or anything. Will open it up again this weekend to explore some more.

    Hmm.. let me know what you find. Mine seems to be coming out of the top where the shock attaches to the frame. I'm a bit concerned and hoping Fox will warranty if it is in fact a problem.
