    Super Fatty DLR Oil Leak

    I bought a new Caffeine F3 with a Super Fatty DLR head shock fork and noticed that a small amount of oil is leaking out of the rebound screw. I removed the cap and found a small amout of oil coming out of the adjustment shaft. I cleaned it and have not seen any more oil come out from under the cap. Does anyone know if this is normal process of breaking in or should it be taken into the dealer? The suspension seems to be operating normal.

    As long as you have complete lock out, and the fork is not making "slurpy" noises, it's fine. A small amount of oil, would not alarm me, if it's enough to form a drop on the floor, then, I'd look into it.

    Thanks

    It is just a few drops out of the adjustment screw under the dial and the fork is operating just fine whether locked out or full.

    Thanks for the input
