465G shock service
« on: August 13, 2015, 12:26:58 AM »
I like to do my own stuff. However I've never done a shock that doesn't have a Schrader valve. How do I release the nitrogen for the reservoir? Anyone have an idea? There should be over 200 PSI/14 BAR so I'd like to be sure it's done.

If anyone's interested I'll document the procedure and post up when I'm done.

    I rebuild all my shocks myself, as for any of the Yamaha shocks, take out the screw on the reservoir and drill out the rubber with a 1/16 or so drill bit.  Then I drill out and tap the reservoir for a 1/8 NPT and install a brass Schrader valve.

Thanks.

My reservoir has a screw with a sort of figure 8 shaped piece behind it. Look like it unscrews. I'll popost a photo tomorrow. Any idea?
