Rear shock service

2 posts in this topic

It's time to service my rear shock (06 YZ 450) but I have not done one of these before. I have watched a couple of youtube videos and it looks fairly straight forward. But for some reason I have it in my brain that these need to charged with nitrogen, is that true? Any advice before I tear it apart? 

 

 

Thanks!

Yes, it is true, but you can do the entire job up to that point and then take the shock to a suspension shop, MC shop, off-road truck shop, etc., to have it recharged. 

 

You can even recharge it with air, temporarily, but it requires 145-170 PSI.
