2003 RM/KX 65 Shock Rebuild Steps (None in service manual)

Background:

Service manual has no steps, only shows how to remove the spring.

Youtube has nothing.

I try to avoid shock rebuilds on big bikes because I don't have tons of confidence in my abilities with so many steps, and lack some of the tools.  I really do want to learn how, and I figured my daughters shock on a 65 would be simpler and help me to work up to it. I know it needs a bumper, and I found the following parts.

Does it have a rubber bladder?

Can anyone direct me to a video of a similar shock rebuild or set of steps with pics for something like, or a KX 65? Thanks

No vid, but a shock is a shock is a shock pretty much. This is what Racetechs 2000 KX65 instructions link to.  https://racetech.com/page/title/IP Sk Rebuild STD

BTW they have a bladder for it so that answers that question for you too.
