I was changing my oil and dog bones yesterday (getting rid of my lowering links, although i did have them set to stock height
) and i decided just for shits and giggles to see how much nitrogen pressure was in the rear shock.
i put my tire pressure gauge on the valve and got 0 psi
. so i took a small pocket screwdriver and pushed the schrader valve in and no pressure came out.
this cant be good, and i suspect that ive been riding like this since i bought the bike because i never thought to check the nitrogen charge in the rear shock.
honestly, who ever checks the nitrogen charge any way? i even had my suspension setup by a local shop in NJ and they never checked it when they were making adjustments.
Ok, back on topic. I was looking through the manual and it states to remove the rear shock and check for oil leaks. then it states to let all the nitrogen pressure out of the shock. Then junk it?
So, is the rear shock rebuildable even though the manual states that it is not?
Does anyone know how much nitrogen pressure to charge the rear shock to?
Can I just charge my rear shock with nitrogen and be ok until i can afford a better aftermarket rear shock?
