    Dyad Shock

    Anyone have any issues with their dyad's? I'm starting to get a bit of extra space where the stanchon goes into the shock when I pump up the negative air chamber-the stanchon comes out as if there were pressure on the saddle (like when your on the bike). I've also noticed a bit of oil coming out of the air valve when I disconnect the pump. The bike (Jekyll) still rides and performs fine, just wondering what's up with the extra space.

    When did you buy the bike? Did you get a shock replacement?

    Are you following the inflation instructions exactly? I have noticed the chamber come out when I did not follow the instructions, since releasing all the air out of the negative is required before filling the positive.

    The only thing I have noticed is a little oil around the air valve after disconnecting the pump.

    Oil discharge upon removing the shock pump is perfectly normal ,

    Bought it at a local shop. And I've followed the instructions exactly every time I check/adjust the air pressure. I'm going to take it in next week to see if the shock should be sent back for replacement or service. Like I said, it still performs fine.

    I know a little oil can be expected whenever you disconnect the pump, but there was enough to form a puddle on the floor when I disconnected it.

    Thanks for the help guys!
