well i finally got the ring off and two threads on the shock were completely destroyed. I got a new ring and was able to get the right sag
setting dialed in, which happen to be below the destroyed threads. I suppose this will be ok except in the future I would like to replace the destroyed shock because I assume there is no way to re-thread the shock properly without it becoming an expensive ordeal. So, can anyone suggest where I should buy a new shock?
I figure I should buy something aftermarket but looking online I am not doing to well with my searches.
I did not go back to Yamaha
because I don't wanna go off on someone who might attempt to tell me it was something I did!
When I first attempted to turn the spanner nut by hand I tried turning the shock spring and it wouldn't budge, and I am more than sure that the yami shop is going to blame me and be of no help. I know that may sound crazy to some but I would rather just avoid the drama.
So, instead of going through all that I would rather just buy a new shock in the future. I think i will be ok as of now.
THanks to all that helped!
