    SID shock technical Issue

    We have got a Sid rear shock here which had an internal problem .Opened it up fixed it and now I have an issue in the rebuild .

    Think I need a Nitrogen charge yup?? There is an IFP in the main shaft .It isolates the damper fluid from some pressurized gas .
    There is a little port at the end of the main shaft with a small screw .But when I open it it seems to have some kind of isolation from inside . like a permanent isolation as Fox Vanilla Rís have at the end of their reservoir .
    The question is that am I right in my guess ? Is it a permanent isolation and we need a Nitrogen charge??

    If so as I cant find one local I have to do the same thing I did to my friends Vanilla .Break the isolation and set a valve on it via machine work and turn it into a serviceable IFP design.
    By the way i always thought what SID stands for ...Its an old model it had a logo on it.

    Super light Inteligent Design.

    I think there is an Air valve adaptor you can buy from SRAM that attaches to that hole
    It looks something like this

    While the title says Vivid and Monarch, the description says its for the service of all rockshox air/coil rear shocks. But given your experience Saber, i reckon you could fashion up a much better air vavle assembly!
