Rear shock 86 cr125

Recommended Posts

My bike does not seem to have rebound damping on the rear shock, I'm wondering where to start on this project, Ive adjusted the rebound damping to the spectrum both ways and have not noticed any difference...where should I start?

Has it been leaking around the head seal? Is there oil on the bottom out bumper or shaft? If so, you likely have no oil inside the shock body to dampen. That being said, you would not have any compression damping either. If you have one but not the other it is time to tear it open. Either way, unless you are ready to tear it open youself, pick a quality shop and have them take a look.

How bad is it to tear open myself- I always prefer to do it myslef and learn a bit more about the bike...I don't know if its been leaking, the bike is 24 years old so there might not be any oil left to see now.
