Vert Maxflo leaks with my 45/45 but not my 88/45

My Vert Maxflo on my 03 shocker #1699 leaks with my 45/45 tank on it but doesn't with my 88/45 tank on it.

Anybody know why?

yes but their preset hight pressure could be different. im not sure if that would make a difference. for example, your 45/45 could be preset to 800 but your vertmaxflow is set to reg your 88/45 down from its 750. The change in that 50 psi could be causing your maxflow to vent that off to prevent from blowing the noid

Greetings,
On our new 03, we are using a 88/45 centerflag adjustable tank.
With the output on the tank set to around 600, the vert reg vents ever so slightly - as in you really have to listen to it to hear it leaking or venting. We readjusted the output of the tank to about 450 to 500 and it doesn't vent now.

Strangely enough, it seems to shoot better, too?

Does anybody know what pressure they like to be fed with?

I use a high output fixed Pure Energy 68/4500 and I dont get any problems with my vertical max-flo leaking.

just so you guys know, not all HP tanks output at the same pressure.

They're SUPPOSED to put out, what, 800 psi, right? However, the regs can sometimes be slightly off, resulting in output from 700-900. So, that one tank that's causing the "leak" is just outputting too much, causing the maxflo to vent.

Remove upper portion of vert reg and lube the orings on this portion of the reg. Inner oring especially. That took care of this problem for me.
