    I have some new 13 inch air shocks that the some of the oil has spilt out. Does anyone know how to go about putting the oil back in the right amount?

    Hey Glider, Merry Christmas to you too. I got my shocks out of the box to do what you suggested, and I found they are 12 inch instead of 13 inch shocks. Do you happen to know how much oil these hold?

    Couldn't give you that info, don't have it on hand, sorry.

    Hey Glider,
    Just thought I would let you know that I filled the 12 inch shocks with the same amount you posted before and they work great. I've put about 100 miles on them and can't tell any difference from the 13 inch shocks that came on the bike. Thanks!

    Thanks for that info, and it makes sense now that I think about it, just didn't want to give you bad info. It's just a shorter piston as I see it.
