  1. cant you lose the 1.3mm from machining down the washer above the reb stack ? or even taking .7mm off each washer below and above the two stacks as long as theres enough material on them. it will lower it ever so slightly but nothing you couldnt compensate on sag.

    08 Yz Shock Revalve

    I would re measure those thicknesses. What are you using the bike for? I have some decent settings for this shock.

    Shock clevis material ?

    I can get u a rod made to fit the clevis u want to use?
  4. You can't replace the adjustment screw as far as I'm aware. I've just replaced the whole top cap assembly before which aren't too expensive.

    SKF vs. OEM seals...

    I've found the opposite on certain forks, not belittling skf it's a great seal but on a lot of riders I've used skf nok have seved just as well.

    Use what you can afford I doubt anyone could tell the difference between skf and oem on the track including myself. Durability wise I've seen skf fail as quickly as oem's

    Upper and Lower bearing replacement?

    I always use a little heat on the shock body works well.

    Upper and Lower bearing replacement?

    A good fitting socket and larger size socket the other side pushed through on a vice works well.

    Like the idea might build one I've been using a press and v blocks when I need it.

    Whats the Second best fork oil?

    That's not bad, I haven't seen the s1 oil but the 01 is £100 for 5 litres over here! :0 I use maxima and get 19 litres at a time for just over £100
