    Autosag; inflated red valve by mistake

    Hi,

    i just got my new Camber this weekend. Great bike but when i wanted to adjust te rear suspension a inflated te red valve by mistake... Cranking it up to 300psi an then adjusted the sag.

    All seems okay but what anyone knowes what might been damaged?

    I wouldn't think anything would be damaged. It is just a valve higher in the chamber that lets the piston sag to a certain level. You may be able to damage something if you inflated the port with the piston lower than the port (possibly), but I would imagine you are fine and this isn't the first time someone has done this (not me, my Monarch won't let you do this).
    Fat guys need bikes too.

    Not to cause worry but I think it says somewhere in the manual if you do that then you could cause some major damage....

    That is why i am a
    bit worried... But manuals are manuals.

    Suspension (Fox CTD) seems okay but haven't ridden on the trails jet.

    how is this even possible?

    i mean how did you even get the shock pump to thread on the red valve?

    there is like no space between the valve and the shock to even thread it on...

    Nothing to worry......I did the same mistake 2 years ago when I first got my 2012 stumpy.
