    Dyad RT2: Oil around stanchion seal?

    -To any fellow Jekyll owners,

    The DYAD shock on my new Jekyll seems to be a bit off from the norm ( judging from what I've read online and by the specs illustrated in the Fox Racing DYAD manual:

    #1) I weigh only 155-160 lbs and to acheive the standard sag I have to put 350lbs of pos pressure into the shock?

    # 2) When I set the Negative pressure to mach on the chart the stanchion shows about .25" even when the bike is not weighted?

    #3) I can see wetness around the stanchion at the seal, perhaps this is common?. (it is a very small amount but it is always present)

    I have followed the set up proceedures every time I have adjusted the air pressure, and I have tried repeatedly to dump all positive pressure and reset but these three things remain constant.
    All I could come up with was that perhaps the long travel positive chamber may have an inappropriate amount of oil? ( Maybe from a long travel interior seal leaking?)

    Has anybody else experienced such issues?

    -Thanks
    Mike
