MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
To lower the air pressure, push the
valve core slightly. To raise the pres-
sure, inject air through the valve with
a tire pump. Change the air pressure
within the range specified in the pre-
ceding table to suit various riding
Inject air little by little so that air
pressure does not rise rapidly.
Air pressure exceeding 290 kPa
, 43 psi) may damage
the oil seal.
Try to set the air pressure of the
left and right shock absorbers as
equally as possible.
Excessively high or low air pres-
sure can adversely affect han-
dling, creating the potential for a
crash resulting in serious injury
or death. Be sure to adjust the air
pressure within the specified
range. Only use compressed air
or nitrogen gas for filling the
shocks. Under normal use heat is
generated within the shock, so
never use oxygen or any other
kind of explosive gas to prevent
the possibility of explosion. Do
not incinerate the rear shock ab-
sorber since it may explode.
