Piggyback Resevoir

Recommended Posts

I ride a '94 XR600R with a recently rebuilt rear shock (A year ago, before I bought it) and I have been playing with the compression and rebound settings and was wondering how the piggyback resevoir works and what kind off nitr. pressure it should have. Any help would be appreciated.

The reservoir simply holds additional oil to aid in cooling. A rubber bladder inside is pressurized with nitrogen to inhibit foaming of the oil.

Is there a specific pressure the Nitrogen should be set at. I know my way around a bike but I've never messed with the rear shock on any of my bikes. Just minor adjustments. Thanks

Pressure set from the factory depends on the bike. Its somewhere in the range of ~150 - ~250psi. Suspension shops often pressurize differently than the factory did if they feel there is a benefit.
