Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Using the grinder, shave off the stop portion [A] of the rod.
Nut [B]
Washer [C]
Piston [D]
Install the new piston and tighten the locknut.
Discard a washer or two.
Pour KYB K2-C (SAE 5W or Bel-Ray SE2 #40) oil into the
gas reservoir to 60 ∼ 70 mm (2.63 ∼ 2.76 in.) [A] from the
gas reservoir upper end.
Recommended Oil:
Check that the bladder [A] on the gas reservoir cap is not
partially collapsed.
If it is, push down the valve core with a screwdriver.
Check the bladder for sign of damage or crack.
If necessary, replace it with a new one.
Do not use a damaged or partially collapsed blad-
der, because it may burst, gently reducing rear
shock performance. .
Apply grease to the lip [B] of the bladder and install the
reservoir cap [C].
Push the bladder into the gas reservoir slowly until it just
clears the circlip groove. Wipe out any spilled oil.
Ensure that no air remains in the system.
Check the circlip for weakening, deformity and flaws.
If necessary, replace it with a new one.
If weakened, deformed or flawed circlip is used, the
gas reservoir cap may not hold when injecting the
nitrogen gas. This would allow oil and internal parts
to explode out of the reservoir.
K2-C (KAYABA) or equivalent
