Rear shock help!

Recommended Posts

So I just had the rear shock apart on my 09 crf450 checked the seals everything looks good inside. I put everything back together bled the new oil in.  I don't have nitrogen on hand at the moment so I just filled with air until I go to work on Monday then I'll charge with nitrogen. With the 150 psi I can compress the shock but it doesn't return on its own?! Would the nitrogen make it return on it's own? Right now with the air once its compressed it stays that way... Any ideas?!

Something is internally wrong,

with either air (which is 78% nitrogen) or nitrogen, it would rebound the same way.

 

When you cycle the shock shaft, do you hear any gurgling inside / does it feel smooth or crunchy. (cavitation)

 

what exactly did you do while it was is-assembled?

-how did you bleed air bubbles from the oil

-did you pressurize and inspect the bladder for leaks

-did you dis-assemble the valve stacks

etc.

Sounds like it's not bleed correct or the needle for rebound is stuck in the fully seated ( 0 out) position
