Bleeding KYB Shock with FC Bump Stop

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 06 YZ450 that has been setup by Factory Connection for a 140lb "A" Offroad/Motocross rider. The suspension is due for service so I thought I would tackle it myself.

When I took off the shock, I found it has one of these installed:

The problem is in order to remove the spring I had to remove the clevis. No problem yet, BUT, when bleeding the shock how do I cycle it through it's stroke? Do I have to install the clevis, bleed the shock, then remove the clevis to install the spring?

Thanks in advance.

Why does the clevis have to come off? Isn't there a clip?

Not that I can see. Unless it is screwed together? If so, it is on there tight!

it seems pretty unlikely to me that you have to take off the clevis.

i'd bet that there's an inner and outer part and they just stick together (happens pretty often due to dirt, water etc.)

Some punches with a rubber mallet may help getting them apart.

I will try to "gently" beat them apart tonight :)

Thanks!

The black piece will separate from the blue piece, there will be a circlip on the blue piece like a Showa or WP. You dont need to take off the clevis.

Yep there is....I soaked it in WD40 and got it to move exposing the c-clip.

Thanks to those that responded! :)
