2010 Shock Service

2 posts in this topic

I serviced my shock today. If you service your own, how are you removing the bladder cap? Previous models had the schrader valve attached to a block on the cap and you pulled on that block to remove the cap. The new cap has nothing to grab. I carefully pulled on the schrader valve with it capped and that worked. I thought I might be able to apply some compressed air to pop it out, but my hand pump was having some trouble today.

I cleaned mine all up and filled it with some fresh motul shock fluid. No changes were made to the internals. Are there any recomended improvements to the valving that I should perform the next time around?

thank you,

Brent

Every YZF shock (for that matter, every KYB ) I've done has benefited from beefing up the face of the rebound stack considerably. The '10 benefits from a little bit of modification to the comp stack, too.

I used a setup I got from SPI on a '10, and the owner was pretty happy with it. Probably not the end all ultimate stacks, since no two people are the same, and since it was a year and a half ago, but here it is. Bold are the shims that were changed:
