Showa Bleeding

Recommended Posts

I am rebuilding the rear shock on a 2006 cr250r and cannot get the shock to fully extend. I have tried four times using the method described in the crf450 diy revalve thread. The shock will extend all but the last 3-5 mm of travel. 

Questions

#1 When I pull the shaft out the remaining 3-5 mm am I possibly pulling against the bottom out spring in the seal head?

#2 When filling the bladder at any point during the procedure, should the shaft be fully extended?

#3 Are the instructions from the thread correct? Are there better bleeding procedures to follow? Is so, where could I find them?

#4 I have tried to find the MX-tech bleeding procedure instructions but every link has an error and they are not the the company's website. Does anyone know where they can be found?

#5 Anyone care to explain when and how air enters the shock during the rebuild procedure? Obviously it can at any time, but any particular instances that are more prominent/common?

Thanks in advance!
