Maybe I missed it in an earlier post Budreaux, but what fork did you get?

Whatever PH. Hopefully once you get the proper shock pump you can tell if your leaking too much as you uncouple the pump or find out if it’s leaking internally. Again, I’m not sure if you’ve checked to see if the schraeder valve itself is leaking. Like I said earlier, the valve core may not be installed all the way in. That’s a simple check.

No, I've not had a chance to check anything yet, due to work. My pump is due in today and I'm hoping to have some time this evening to look it all over. I probably should do a little research n videos before I try and take anything apart.

Well, having the proper pump seems to have made all the difference. It's setting at 125psi now.. Road it a bit and the seals all stayed put.
The trigger issue was a simple adjustment.. it must have shifted while I was riding, causing the lever to bottom out on on the shifter mounting bracket next to it, preventing it from locking into place.

The fork seems to be holding air pressure just fine.. I'll see if its still pressurized Im the morning.

Well, my last upgrade finally showed up today. Hopefully I can get them installed this evening, but probably be the weekend before I can.

The color matches my bikes theme pretty good. Reviews on several sites were really positive for these brakes and I think they will serve my needs pretty well. I'll upload a pic of the bike once everything is installed and I get out for a ride this weekend.
