K. B4 I look like a doink taking the FS into the shop ...

I have 3 hardtails and expanded to a FS this past late Spring. 2008 Yukon FX.

I've been riding it a lot lately and my hydrolic shock does NOT retain air.

Gots the pump and even with pump still attached and pressure is applied to saddle - air leaks from under the shock. As a matter of fact, it all leaks out. wtf

Not really happy.

However, before I take the bike in - am I doing something wrong?

Got some pointers I can go in with to the shop?

Yeah, take it to the LBS, hopefully the one you purchased at- maybe warranty if the shock is DOA. Also, get them to show you how to air up/read pressure- if they know their ***** they will be an asset.
