After a few short rides on my new 2:1 4x I decided that the suspension works kinda weird, so I went down to check the pressure and such.
The main air chamber pressure was quite fine, at 50PSI which is okay for my weight (around 60kg in all gear), but the bottoming control chamber had this problem I've not noticed before:
upon attaching the pump I've noticed it has extremely low pressure, around 20PSI. I remember pumping it to the recommended level of 55PSI before the first ride, so I got the pressure back to that level.
Upon disengaging the air pump i've heard this "pshh-hh" noise and saw the manometer gauge drop to zero. I do realise that some air is due to escape, but not everything! I've never had such issues with any RockShox or Fox air hardware so this is kinda weird.
I do actually have a 32TALAS fork right now and the pump works perfectly fine with it.
After playing for quite a long time with the pump and shock (connecting the pump just enough to start providing some air, pumping the shock to 100PSI, then quickly disconnecting the pump), I kinda managed to hook the pressure at about ~60, but I could never do the accurate adjustment, which is quite dissapointing.
Both chambers hold the air just fine when pumped, so this might be just a faulty nipple.
So please tell me If I am doing something wrong here or this is really an issue which requires further consdering. Thanks alot in advance.
