No fluid came out? Have you ever had the oil changed in the forks?

Get the fork seals and oil changed, it's probably due. And get the push button air bleeders, then you won't keep losing your screws.

i order push button bleeders but i left it open for now on a stand is it a problem to stay open for 1 or 2 nights ?? or i have to search for something to close the gap untill i take the bleeders.

Maybe cover the fork with a rag to keep the dust out, but you should be fine. I agree with Colintrax that you should probably replace the seals and oil though.

Braaapin' aint easy.

No issues those showas are cartridge forks and the important parts are self contained. Nothing happened at all. Just put in a new bleeder and ride. The push buttons are convenient but tend to get broken off. I use the scews for that reason.

I will confirm there should be no issues. I've ridden and entire day without one of those before.

It popped up in the air as i was bleeding my forks on a hot day and landed in the sand once. I couldn't find the fucker.

Nothing bad came of it except for loss of focus listening to the air going in an out in bumpy sections.

While waiting for a new one I found a bolt with the same thread, wrapped it with teflon tape and ran it for a week or two.
