its been cold in the garage but I decided to play with it a little after work. would anyone have a quick measurement off their bike handy? the rear still leaks down when I do this but im wondering. ive never added air to system since I got it being that it was just recently and before winter. The rear had no air or not enough to notice but the front did so i drained it and took the valve/fitting/tube lock assy off and I wanted to clean the fittings, put new shraeders in and area around it (never had stem covers on from PO) and since its all wide and extended fender cover, gets a lot of krud up in there so took it to work.
now I figure this is suppose to be a zero loss pump and hooking the pump up when theres air in the system, the gage should read whats in the shocks/lines right off the bat, right?! I could hook up the pump and within one pump, im up to 20 psi right away if I remember right.....that don't seem right, thought it was a few psi per pump to fill the system. assembling the fittings back to how they were through the 1/8in plate and the jam nuts in front, it doesn't seem like the pump is able to thread all the way opening the valves, it bottoms out on the jam nuts leading me to believe that the 20 psi is just in the pump itself.
Am I right in thinking this?! would anyone have a quick measurement on how far out the threaded valve housing sticks out past the jam nut??? the threaded body is about 7/16". the mounting plate is 1/8" the jam nut is 1/8" so im only left with roughly 3/16" to attach the pump, doesn't seem like enough No way to really change this besides getting a thinner plate and mounting it on the original plate. what do you think?>
