I want to open up the air can and top up / check the lubricating oil in the can on my Monarch Plus. (I did this often on my Fox RP23). A couple of friends have ended up with black streaks on the shaft when the oil has run dry, warranty repaired, but the shocks had to go back for a few weeks.
The service guide suggests taking the air valve out completely from the can and the reservoir, is that really required ? Can I just remove all of the air and unscrew the body ? Thanks.
