    Fox 36 Fit RC2 oil seeping through the air valve.

    title.
    Could this mean that the Fit cartridge is blown, or is this normal. It doesn't seem to be behaving any differently. Is this an issue, if so can i ignore it until service time? Its only seeped out a tiny bit. Fork is a 2013 160mm RC2

    Thanks.

    The fit cartridge is in the other leg. It will be lub oil from above the air piston. It's normal for a bit that has coated the valve to come out when you relaese air pressure.

    It's "float fluid". ie. that thick blue oil used to lube and help seal the air chamber. Perfectly normal for a tiny bit to spew out of the air valve.
