Schrader strut coupler for KYB shock

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody. I am trying to refill with nitrogen a '09 CRF KYB rear shock. I already own a setup with a schrader strut coupler that I was using to service the shock on my previous bike. Only problem is, the schrader valve on the KYB shock is very short and the coupler touches the face of the shock without the threads bottoming out and sealing. The coupler I am using is the following one:

Has anyone else come across this problem ? Are all the schrader valves on the KYB shocks that short ? I am looking for a strut coupler with a lower profile but I unable to find one. Any suggestions ?

Yes they have they have the core and plunger. Here's the one I have. It's made by Schrader and the number on it is 6358.ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1453129997.930394.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1453130015.029736.jpg
