Rear shock absorber loss

Post by Phil76750 » Thu May 10, 2018 3:09 am



Hello everyone
I found that duo, inflation at 4 bars or more, on the road, my rear shock loses its load, say after 50 kms.
On the crutch, this does not happen (which seems logical to me)
Before dismantling the electro-valves, would anyone have an idea?
Thank you for your answers

Bonjour à Tous
J’ai constaté qu’en duo, gonflage à 4 bars ou plus, sur route, mon amortisseur arrière perd sa charge, disons après 50 kms.
Sur la béquille, cela ne se produit pas (ce qui me semble logique)
Avant de démonter l’ensemble électro-vannes, quelqu’un aurait il une idée ?
Merci de vos réponses

I would get a spray bottle, fill it with water, and add a bit of dish soap. Pump up the suspension, and spray the soapy water on the hoses and fittings around the shock. Look for bubbles.
