Rockshox Oil Leak

I have a 2-1/2 month old G.F. Cobia with the Rockshox tora fork. There is a small oil leak coming from under the motion control lever at the top of the fork. I store the bike in the vertical position. Today I rode it on the road and locked out the fork, this seems to make the oil leak more noticeable. anyone know what would cause this and is it an easy fix or something that is going to have to be sent back to sram?

Bad o-ring. Try tightening up the top cap under the control. I rebuild Rockshox forks if you can't get it covered under warranty or they try to rip you off with cost send me a PM. I work cheap and do a great job and offer 30 day garauntee.

Thanks for the reply I took it back to the Lbs I bought it from and they took it apart and found Something stuck to the O-Ring. I guess Sh*# happens, it seems to be fixed and I had no down time thats all that matters. Thanks again
