I have a 2009 450 XC-W and am looking to revalve the shock and forks my self. I am looking for any help in how to do this. I have all the tools I need for my forks but I am still alittle fuzzy on the tools I will need for my rear shock. I have redone my forks and seals many times and am pretty familiar with the inner workings. I have never had any experience in tearing my rear shock apart. Also they are the stock forks (cartridge style) and shock (WP PDS- no linkage). To give you all a bit of a background, I am 6 feet 2 inches tall and weigh 205. I race Vet B class in Hare Scrambles that include a lot of fast sections, tight woods, alot of rocks and roots, and some MX. THe dirt is anywhere from loose and loomy to hard pack clay. Any help anyone can give I would be all ears!
