Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Mount the circlip [A] in the groove in the gas reservoir.
Pull up the gas reservoir cap [A] against the circlip. The
end of the gas reservoir cap must align [B] with the end
of the gas reservoir [C].
If the end of the gas reservoir cap and the end of
the gas reservoir are not aligned, the circlip is not
correctly fitting in the groove in the gas reservoir or
is deformed. In this case, the oil and internal parts
could explode out of the reservoir when injecting
the nitrogen gas or while riding the motorcycle.
Pour KYB K2-C (SAE 5W or Bel-Ray SE2 #40) oil into the
rear shock body to 55 mm (1.77 in.) [A] from the lower end
of the rear shock body [B].
Insert the piston end [A] of the piston rod assembly into
the rear shock body [C] slowly. Do not insert the seal
assembly [B] yet. Pump the piston rod until all the air is
forced out of the rear shock body.
