What have you broken on your bike today?
#1
Noticed the wiper seal on my Fox Float RP2 was protruding by a couple of mm one side. Took the air can off to find one its inner lips was deformed, pushing the wiper seal. I tried to push it back into place to find it was partially detached. Result. A few days before holiday.

They are easy to replace, just need a pic to get them out, and air can seal kits only cost about £30.

No it's the sleeve/can itself. Was the second ride since fitting new seals. Ordered new can from mojo + next day delivery £40, hopefully will get to me by the end of tomorrow otherwise will be on hardtail around Keswick.

Interesting...

Pricier than expected.

I have had that happen in the past. There are a couple of things that can cause it

Too much oil in lower part of the shock
Nicked seal on the piston allowing air past

As you had just serviced it double check it when you fit the new one
