Having a few problems with my rear shock...
I have a 2009 Specialized FSR XC with an X-Fusion shock. I recently cross threaded my shock pump onto the shock valve and then managed to unscrew the valve out of the shock body whilst trying to remove the pump. I got the valve out of the pump with a pair of pliers and it is now back in place and holding air but minus it's small rubber seal which broke and also looking worse for wear with a knackered thread.
LBS tell me that the only option is to send the shock off to Specialized for a service which replaces the valve, all seals and will cost £80. I'm a bit reluctnat to spend £80 servicing a pretty cheap shock when it doesn't really need servicing (only done a handful of rides) and only really needs a new valve.
I see CRC/Merlin/etc have Fox/RockShox rear shocks for between £100-130, so spending £80 to effectively get a new valve for this x-fusion unit seems a bit daft?
