Hi team, thoughts on my X2? After about 30 hours use from its last full service, having had about 160hours total over its 9 months, it has decided to leak oil out from between the shaft and where that meets the piggyback reservoir. Is this fixable or is it replacement job?

I can see others have experienced it too (here)

interesting, id be curious what blueshark NZ said about that, id believe that's warranty worthy IMO.

Why do so many people have issues with X2's? seen alot of issues recently most people literally blowing them up.
Pay a premium for Fox but i dont feel like you get a premium product anymore?

It's getting sent off for an assessment at Blueshark now. Will report back so that this info may help someone else in the future.

Just to close off the loop for any future referencing of this, it sounded as though there was a crack in the upper stanchion where it threads into the upper trunnion casting piece. Quick warranty job in the end.

This has happened to be twice this season, it's currently out for another rebuild. I have spoken to my shop about it and this is common. I also just blew out my fox DHX2 I got to run while the x2 gets rebuilt.

I'm not sure what is going on with fox, I ride my bike for sure, but i'm 160lbs and I'm not doing anything out of the ordinary.

I hope you have better luck with the rebuild!
