    RS shock pump on FOX suspension

    dont have access to my topeak shock pump. so i tried using the RS pump that came with my recon on my FOX fork and shock. it doesnt seem to make any type of reading of psi. if i just pump it air gets in there and has some spike the pressure on the gauge really fast then just goes down. it puts air in it sort of but there is no way of telling how much. if i push the bleed button instantly goes to 0

    is this normal for RS pumps to only work on RS stuff?

    That's what happens when you use Rock Shox air in a Fox fork. They've added a special ingredient to the pum that reacts with the seals and oil in your Fox fork... expect your fork to be garbage within in a week.













    But seriously, yes it should work. I've used different brand pumps on different brand forks and shocks many times and it has always worked... maybe the pump is faulty, lacking an o-ring or something?

    probably bad pump. seems it doesnt depress the valve when screwed on all the way.
