*** 2012 RMZ450 Shock

Recommended Posts

I am digging into a 2012 RMZ450 shock,Taking it apart like normal,everything is going as planned,when I try to seperate the shock shaft from the body it won't,looks like the piston won't clear the circlip groove,any ideas on how to get the piston to pass the groove??????????:smirk::bonk:

It's like the 10 & 11 shocks with the quad ring piston ring. You need the special little tool that goes into the cir clip groove to get it out otherwise you will ruin the ring....
