I just got a pair of 100mm HR shocks and no matter how tight or loose i put the cap, oil comes out the vent hole until its half empty, can anyone help me resolve this problem. Was thinking maybe i could stick a toothpick in the hole and break it off.

Ya i did but just wondering if anyone else has run into this problem or knows some way of fixing this problem
I found someone that suggested to put a piece of sponge in the blatter, it seen to help, atleast ive got a bit of preload now and no leak, im assuming that the blatter is weak

I need a photo of the shock and exactly where the hole you say is. My guess is that one of your shocks is either missing or has a faulty diaphragm. Could be an o ring, but it sounds like it's leaking somewhere other that the bottom. Tbh, I didn't know HR made shocks. I'll check their website to get my own perspective if you give me a part number
