Okay TT,I have a few questions! the shock is from an 03 yz250f. before i posy pics and ask questions,let me start off by saying that with the oil in the shock and the nitrogen in there, i removed the clevis.why? i have no idea. i took on the shock with no instruction, I didnt know what i was doing and i wasnt expecting what happened(removing clevis result). which was all the oil shooting out very fast and the rod came out very fast as well,luckily, no one got hurt just a big oil mess was left and me here with a few questions. since the oil shot out,I have no idea what the oil level was at before and i have no idea how much(OZ/mL) oil was in there. I also have no idea which way the rod goes into the shaft. so here we go..... 1.) does the rod go in like this(pointy end out)... or like this(pointy end in)... 2.) Do i install this like the picture shows? or should i squeeze it leaving indents in the rubber so more nitrogen can be filled in there? 3.) I didnt know to remove peening,so i took off the shaft nut with the peening on there completly,not grinded down at all. all peening is now gone. I want to use red Loctite on the nut but i dont know how hard i should tighten the nut? should i tighten it down as much as i can? I honestly dont ever plan to remove the nut again so if its on there really tight,fine with me! this nut can not come loose while im riding!! tightening the nut down as much as i can would make me feel safe along with the loctite. The shock didnt need a rebuild/cleaning, I just did it for a peace of mind. Also, Ive tightened the shock shaft nut down as much as i can but with no loctite,when i do that, the shock piston does not move up or down freely at all and it does not spin, do you want that? or does there have to be play? 5.) can someone tell me how many OZ or mL of oil i need in the shock? or give me an idea at what level the oil should be at? I plan to get the shock to stock setting, i will adjust the shock by rebound/dampning and i will set my sag. for me, thats enough. Im not putting oil and nitrogen in the shock according to my weight. also, it would be easiest if you answered lke so... 1.) your answer 2.) your answer 3.) youe anwer and so on. thanks TT!
