    Carbon Lefty SL oil leak?!

    I just purchased an '08 carbon rush with the lefty sl fork last week. After hauling it in the back of my truck with it lying on its non-drive side (inside camper top on carpet--already babying it), I noticed oil on dripping from the fork. It appears to be coming from the red rebound control knob. Is this normal when the bike is lying on the side? Has anyone experienced this leak? And, what should be done to correct it?

    Thanks for any info/advice. I've only 2 rides on it before the leak.

    Also, the fork seems pretty harsh on small bumps and rocky sections when the fork doesn't compress fully. Would having a negative spring that is stiffer than what is recommended for my body weight have anything to do with this?
    How does the negative spring affect the fork's performance?

    which size is frame ?

    normally complete bikes has a color of springs inside lefties depending on size .

    obviously this consider how much must a rider weight ... because springs are done with steps of weight .

    at home i have the difference in weights and colors
