    '01 Rockshox SID XC rear oil

    Ripped apart a Rockshox SID XC rear shock trying to figure out how to put oil in it. (The damper sounds and feels low on oil.) Can't figure out how to get oil into it. There are no plugs and it appears to be impossible to dissassemble the damper. Any one know what I'm missing?

    like Fox rear shocks...the SID is a nitrogen charged shock and the damper needs to be service by a shop with the ability to charge the shock. Hippie Tech can service this shock

    Thanks. That makes sense. I hate to put too much money into an 8 year old frame. Maybe I'll look for a used shock first.
