    Fox float rp23 with boost valve blown?

    Feels blown and sounds like its missing oil when compressed and i noticed its riding softer but its not leaking. Anything I can do to fix it I have a race in a week...

    Probably lost IFP chamber pressure or air has slipped past the IFP into the fluid (sounds "squishy"). There are a couple of recent threads where folks have serviced their Fox IFP chamber and been happy with the outcome.

    If time is a factor, I would advise asking a friend to lend his (provided you can transfer the mounting hardware), while sending your shock to Push industries.
    Tinkering with shocks is quite involved, and it could ruin your race if it failed... maybe even your bike or yourself!

    Not unless you are proficient with working on pressurized shocks and have a needle setup to fill the IFP chamber. Oh ya . . . and parts. Its actually more likely that it sucked air from the spring side past the damper shaft seal. Air mixes with the oil and damping is lost.
