When I say shipping, I mean in a cargo container, half way around the world. And it's going to spend some time on a semi running across the US as well. My avid elixir 1 system has been very good to me for the past year and a half, but I suspect that the fluid may expand a bit once it's all heated up in that container (I've read we can get up over 130F for extended periods). Should I drain some fluid out of the system before I load the bike into the container, or is there some other trick that might work? I doubt the fluid can expand enough to cause any damage (maybe blow an o-ring or something?), but I can't take any chances, with customs and immigration in New Zealand being pretty nervous about all things shipped!
