My ion has recently developed a small air leak. I know its at the rear banjo fitting. The problem is that ive replaced the fitting but its still leaking. I have it screwed in as much as possible without damaging the gun, and i have checked the hose...which is fine. So im stumped and have no idea what the problem is, and i was hoping the friendly neighborhood spec ops people could help me out. Normally i would take it to the pro shop, but it just closed down :)

Sounds like the hose is really the problem. Sometimes just looking at the hose you can't tell that there is a small hole(s) in it. I suggest replacing the hose and seeing if that helps.

You can trying putting some teflon tape on the threads of the banjo and seeing if it helps. I've never had to do this because the banjo has an O-Ring that seals it off when its tightened down.

I have seen a few back banjo leaks and normally the issue is that either the rear hose needs replacement, is either too short or too long, or the end sin't cut squarely. Rarely is it the fact that the banjo itself is the problem but it could happen. The back hose should have a slight bend in it, like it's ~ .5 mm too long BUT NO MORE...and the end inside the banjo must be cut squarely. Any jagged/uneven edge will cause a leak.

First, I would take a mild soap solution in a spray bottle, and squirt the rear banjo and hose to find the EXACT location of the leak. Your marker needs to be aired up for this. DO NOT WET THE BOARD OR NOID COIL. Although they are water resistant, you don't want to run the risk of further damage to thm.

Squirtihng the soapy water will create bubbles where the air is leaking.

IF it's the threaded part that goes into the rear donut, teflon tape the banjo threads.
IF it's the banjo internally, replace it with a new one. Punisher's sells them in the Ion OEM section.
IF it's the hose, replace with the appropriate one again, available through Punisher's.

yes, replace the hose with a new one and wrap Teflon tape around the banjo fittings threads

there's a simple fix to this. i've had this problem several times.
replace the orings on the back breech thing. works every time for me when i get a leak back there.
