Anyone know where to even start looking for a place to fill the bladder on my rear shock? I asked a local shop here in Pittsburgh but they stated they do not do it.

Would filling the bladder with regular air instead of the N2 matter?

Try a Cooper tire dealer.
DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR!

Regular air will be fine, people have been using it for years without issues

Use a high pressure bicycle pump or something that does not store air and you won't notice a difference. I quit paying for the n2 thing for a couple years now and I like that I can tinker with shock air pressure to tune the rear suspension too.

I think I'm going to go the air route. If it doesn't work then I'll get it filled with N2! Thanks, Johnny89!

The problem with air is the water vapor expands with heat increasing the pressure.

What if I don't use a air storage tank and just use a pump (bicycle), there shouldn't be any moisture in the air then, correct?
