Nitrogen Recharge Locations


I am looking to recharge my nitrogen in my shock and am unsure of places around me that will do it. I took a gauge to it and got a whopping 40lbs. I believe it's supposed to be around 130-140. I assume because it is a 1998 it would have leaked out eventually. Anyone know of a local area in Mid Massachusetts, North CT, or North RI? Thanks for any replies.

If you know of a place and have had it done could you be so kind to leave what they charged you? I have read between $10-25 which is nothing major to me, so I wouldn't have any problems with the price, seeing as it isn't something that has to be done monthly.

I have heard you can actually get Costco to fill it up. Thats all they use when they air up car/truck tires. They are all over so you should be able to find one close. I miss MA :o(

Pretty sure most motorcycle dealers cam do it. I worked at Enfield motorsports and they do it there. Also there's R.E.P suspension in westspringfield,ma

Where did you end up going? I live south of Boston, just rebuilt my shock and i need somewhere cheap to fill it.

I just had mine rebuilt by a local guy with seals and charge for 125.00 $,if it lost its charge it may be leaking. In Monson,just south of the hill climb Rt32.

grab the phone number off his bike,yes this was my lowered shock off the flat track/ice bike. Edited by slideleft

Manchester Honda in CT can do it.

      Has anyone around New Jersey heard of Lepis Land? I found people talking on other forums about it and how riding there is by donation only. Does anyone have anymore information about it or a phone number to contact them?

      10/17/08 UPDATE! I posted more photos on page 2. Not all pictures are on page 1. I will constantly be adding more photos as I go along.
      Many of you have heard of my starting/idle problems with the 610. Carburetion has been ruled-out time and time again. I sensed something else was going on. The engine has never wanted to idle down, sounded like there was a load on it even in neutral. Since I had metal filings in my oil when I first got it, I have now decided to overhaul it and make everything ship-shape. It turns out that I was correct- there is some valve damage that I will talk about later.
      I don't like to take apart dirty engines and get the dirt inside 'em

      A little gross.

      My cleaning station:

      A little better now

      Clutch removal:

      after removing springs

      bottom of pressure plate

      everything looked decent as far as wear

      after removing plates

      basket after removing hub

      Area after removing basket.

      Removing the starter gear with snap ring pliers

      More to come. I'm uploading pictures of the case splitting, etc...
      I'll try to ease off on the photo-over-obsession. The next batch of info/photos will be a little more interesting.
      Comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm already ordering parts from George so before I know it, I'll be just waiting on new parts (after a little more cleaning.
