Rear shock fluid sprayed out!

Recommended Posts

I was changing the shock and the pin came out of the head and fluid sprayed everywhere! I put the pin back in and all is good except for the loss of shock fluid. Can I replace the fluid myself? If i can...how do you do it? I have an 05 rmz250.

you have to release the N2, add oil and bleed the shock.

try the bleeding procedure DaveJ posted here.

Refill with N2

"changing the shock and the pin came out".....

You mean, you took the clevis off the shock shaft to remove the spring? Is that what you're saying?

I'm sure that you now realize there's an easier way.......

Is $95 a lot for a rebuild and re charge?

i'd say it's a reasonable price

First of all you need to explain what it was that came out of the shock. You could have a bigger problem than just a rebuild. Pics would help us help you.
