My rear suspension is really, really messed up. Help me fix it!

Recommended Posts

I've got an 02 426F, problem is that my rear shock will compress but will not rebound hardly at all. I mean I have to pull up on the fender to get it to come back. I have the factory service manual but it states nothing about the nitrogen pressure for the piggyback reservoir. Also, It doesnt tell me what those adjustment screws do. Can somebody clear this up for me?

I bet the linkage bearings are rusted solid...remove the shock and see if the wheel will move through the travel freely.

When was the last time you changed the oil in the shock? Many forget that you should service your suspension every so often. At least once a year or so for the average recreational rider.
