you get a build up of mud under the shock cap which can pop your bladder
so you need to pull the top off and clean it out all the time
for the average racer that only changes his shock oils every other time it just creates more work

People that use this mod, how they rebuild their shocks? Following the user manual?
Here in Italy we used foam, but every time bladders were broken...
Thanks
