Nitrogen pressure on rear shock?

9 posts in this topic

I'm on a servicing rear shock job...what is the recommended nitrogen pressure to put in a 2000 YZ426 rear shock....

It was 90 lbs/sq inches at disassembly...seem pretty low to me....

Oh I'm 195lbs hare-cramble/trail rider if it's valuable info

Thanks

Dan

Stock the nitrogen is pressurized to 147 psi in the shock bladder but you can go a little higher than that. I just did mine the other day and went with 155 psi.

stock pressure is like 148 psi, Race Tech recommends 175 psi w/the gold valve (to help the seal head seal better). Dont try to check your pressure after you fill it or you will lose 15-20 psi just by checking it!

Somebody told me 175 a long time ago and that's what I've been running ever since....
