My shock is the only thing on my bike left for me to re-build. You guys got any tips on this job? Any special tools I need? Tips? Thanks in advance...

The shock is real easy to do, in comparison to forks IMO (especially if you are just changing the oil)! Download the Race Tech instructions on my site and there is 2 pages that go over assembly/reassembly. The only "special" tool you need is to modify a small flathead screwdriver (sharpen and bend it) so that you can take out the circlips easier, they are tricky until you figure out what way works best! Good Luck,

Garrett
