nitrogen in the rear shock gas cylinder seems to have been emptied. anyone tried pumping air instead of nitrogen?

don't do it. "air" contains many things, including water vapor. if put in the shock it'll condense in time and will corrode the insides. dead shock body.

Worst part of air is the oxygen, that is what makes everything corrode oe "oxidize". Don't do it!
