Default leaking kyosho sp2 shocks

My sp2 shocks leak like crazy from the top, any suggestion to fix this? The buggy is brand new has like 10 tanks thru.

I am trying to save up later for a MP9 so I don't want to spend $100+ to get the big bore shocks.

Thanks

Leaking from the small hole or tread??. If leaking from the hole pull the black rubber from inside and re -install but dont push it all the way in.

Inspect the bladders in the shock caps for tears or pinholes. The smallest hole will cause a leak and reduce the shocks performance. If they are defective replace them with new Kyosho ones.

your shock bladders are not seated properly , when you install the bladders make sure they are free and spin around in the shock cap . there is a groove that they sit in , i suggest using some green slime when putting your shocks together and sanding the top of the shock body so there isn't a sharp edge to rip the bladders

OK, Let me redo the shocks.

I have 5 K1,2,3 and none of them leaked. Someone tells me kyosho have a new bladder. Anyone have that part number?

Thanks
