Hello guys,

Anyone can help me with the disassembly & assembly procedure for rear shock absorber
I have oil leaks in my 01´ WR 426, the manual don’t say nothing about this matter

What is the correct oil level or amount of oil ?? And kind of oil (fork oil????)

My clymer manual says

" If the shock is leaking, or its time to replace the oil, refer all service to a yamaha dealership, or a suspention expert"

Sounds like it may require special tools and traing :thumbsup:

Forks are a do-it-yourself job, the shock is generally considered a send-it-in job. Too much stuff in a small area...SC
