I bought a used 2007 Jetstream XP and it's always had a real slow leak in the rear suspension (Cane Creek AD-5).
A few months ago I ordered an overhaul kit knowing I'd have to rebuild it soon.
Yesterday was that day. It will barely hold pressure through one ride.
So I opened it up and it's real obvious it's been rebuilt before there were just enough tool marks to make me think that it won't last forever again.
I overhauled the shock and pumped it to 200 lbs. and left it in a bucket of water for a few hours. No leaks.
Reinstalled and took a ride. Now that I know that somebody did a rotten job trying to rebuild this shock once I don't have a lot of confidence in getting it too far away from home.
I want to buy a new rear shock and want to upgrade but I can't seem to find the AD-12 anywhere. Does the Cloud Nine 6.5 x 1.5 fit the Jetsteam XP? There are no size specs on the Cane Creek site for the AD-5.
