Does anyone have a idea on how much nitrogen charge my 2000 WR takes? Just replaced the oil. The seals are new. but how much charge do these take?

Hmm...I dunno. The manual shows you how to disassemble every part of the bike except the rear shock. Personally, I wouldn't mess with it myself.

I found out 150psi for the nitro! Shocks dont bother me much I do them all winter long for the sleds.

I think yamaha says 142 but 150 will do just fine. It doesn't hurt the shock to run more. The shock will just react different with the pressure. I use to run mine at 175 psi.

Ok, just be careful. Good luck.
