Ninja Reg Leaking through pin

So before I go into this in detail, I would like to say I have 2 ninja regs and aside from the problems that are happening on the one AFTER I went in there to remove shims, I have never had a problem with their regs and would always highly recommend them.

Now that that is out of the way, I took the bonnet off my Ninja Adjustable 4500 regulator the other day to pull those two red shims out in preparation for a possible (I know its a little preemptive) Machine Vapor purchase which is supposedly designed to take in ~500-550 psi output pressure from the tank. I watched the teardown video(s) and followed it as closely as possible. Got the two shims out, stored them away safely and put it all back together after very light lubricating with Pathogen Super Grease (I know not Ninja grease but its all I had) and after filling, once its on my POPS ASA, theres air leaking through the pin. At first, it would leak whether or not the POPS was engaged. Now it leaks only when the POPS is engaged.

At first I thought it was the ASA so I tried 3 tanks with different regs including a Ninja adjustable regulator and heard nothing. I then switched back to my tank, aired it all up and boom - verrrrrrry slow leak. I stripped the bonnet off after emptying the tank at the field and checked all o-rings and seals as well as the two silver shims and it was all fine. Put it back together, leak.

I didn't have the red shims on my person so I couldn't put it back in to check and since I don't have my own high pressure air system to fill and test now I'm waiting until Sunday to check it out again. All in all, just looking for suggestions and advice. What could I have done wrong? should I NOT remove the shims and find myself out of pocket for a new reg/slp reg?

That is very odd and I apologize about that issue, if you take that system off of the marker and hold the reg under water, are their air bubbles coming from the pin valve area of the reg? I only ask because I am not sure exactly how you would get a leak through the pin if the POPS is engaged and the system is on your marker because that will allow full flow through the pin valve area so I am thinking it may be leaking elsewhere on the reg. Let me know on that and I will make sure we get you a solution.

Will get the reg fully removed today and see. I had been making all my adjustments thus far by only removing the bonnet while leaving the rest of the assembly on the tank.

Did you try to grease the oring in the top of the bonnet?

I had this issue once. Remove the bonnet and flip the oring that's in the pin. Make sure it's seated properly and hopefully that should help

Point to note - no more leak. Lubed that oring up and it was just fine.
