Dave- wouldn't any oil external to the cartridge shock be for cooling that cartridge?
The constant movement it goes thru creates heat....outside oil would extract said heat, and keep any visible springs happily cooled too?
(see how little I know about1800s..are there springs outside the mono tubes? should I even care, because I am on a 1500)
Progressive opens in an hour- call them and describe the situation-- before tearing your bike down and returning current shocks
They can put a different spring or valve etc inside to tailor the shock to your needs
Racing is their business, so having a variety of parts choices the public doesn't know about = what do you want- Yes we can!
I know they overhaul/rebuild their shocks and offer choices then.
Another example- you don't want a tight 1500?? springs for xyz 1200 are same size in a softer rates, call tech support
