    Fox F80 RL 29 low on damper fluid, is this a big problem?

    I ride a 2010 Gary Fisher Rig with the stock Fox fork on it. Some of the red fox damper fluid has leaked out the topcap. I tightened everything up to the correct torque specs and that fixed the problem but i wanted to know how important adding more fluid would be? It still feels okay and i don't particularly want to buy fluid if i don't have to. What do you guys think?

    Depends how much fluid was lost. If it was a lot, you'll lose damping. A little bit, you'll be ok.
