So first off my fork doesn't have a rebound adjustment. (05' Bomber) It's a new fork as of October. I jumped on for a cruise the other day, and it was so plush that all of my pedal force was being absorbed. I stopped in a little shop and borrowed a fork pump, I aired it back up, and put a little more in than usual. Both sides were like 65 or 70 psi. After I left I was manualling and the rebound had a slight clunk in it. Never felt it before. I wasn't sure what the deal was at the time, so I used my fingernail to push in the air valve and it squirted me in the face with fluid. I thought that there wasn't supposed to be any fluid in the air resovoir. WTF? I came to the conclusion that the rebound slack came from a loss of oil somehow, maybe back into the shop's fork pump? Did I bust a seal and now I can expect to find fluid in places it shouldn't be, or did I just allow fluid out somehow and filling it back up will fix me? Any insight would be nice, before I go spend money.
