    need help- preventing bottoming jumps

    yeah, that is all you need to bring to your local shop. While you are at it, it might be in your best interest to clean and re-grease all of your shock, swing arm, and linkage bearings, as if these are not properly working, neither will your shock.

    need help- preventing bottoming jumps

    Are the springs correct for your weight? That would be the first thing to check. Then I would move on to the other things such as oil weight,and valving. Also, the local shop should be able to fill the bladder with nitrogen. You have to have nitrogen in your shock bladder no matter what so don't worry if that will make it too stiff. That would'nt be the problem.

    Are zip ties hard on the fork tube?

    another good idea is to just use a piece of yarn. This wont hurt your dust seal and shouldnt scratch your tube if dirt gets in there.
  4. I went with cannon racecraft also, they were able to tell me which springs to use and were able to ship them quickly!

    How much nitrogen??

    In the few that I have done, generally around 150 psi worked well.

    shock bleeding

    I am having a problem with an oil change for a shock off of an 03' Rm125. When I try to bleed the stack, the nitrogen bladder keeps sucking itself down the chamber and then pushes back up causing the bleeding stage to be very difficult for me. I am fairly new to shock rebuilds but I have done a few in the past and never had this problem. Could I be skipping a stage or is there somthing wrong with the stacks that wont allow oil to flow and bleed out the air. Any help would be much appreciated!

    terminology and diagrams

    DaveJ, I ride an RMZ250 05' so I guess that would be a good place to start, But I am interested in any information I can get my hands on.
  8. I have been reading up on all of the forums about valving shims and everything that hastodo with them. I am new to this area and have a hard time understanding what everyone is talking about with the different stacks and where they are positioned in the actual suspension. Does anyone have some sort of diagram or way to describe the different shims, washers, nuts and spacers that are involved in revalving?
