ok, i changed my rear shock oil. used 10W fork oil.
and used the syringe that was mentioned in the forum to suck out the old and put back the new... made it go a lot quicker.
but i'm confused about the quantitys.
the Clymers says to fill it up, then drain out 90ml (the air volume) and that it will then leave the correct amount of oil and 90ml of empty space.
well.. i measured everything...
i sucked out 110ml of old oil.
when i filled it up completely it took 185ml.
then sucked out 90ml of new oil.. which means i now should have...
90ml of air, and 95ml of oil in the shock.
this is kind of close to the 110ml of old oil i sucked out.
but doesn't seem to jive with the numbers in the Clymers book.. although i'm not sure if the Clymers book is giving a total volume or an oil volume.. either way it doesn't match.
at any rate, the rear end feels a lot better now.
anybody else measured theirs exactly and have similar volumes to what i measured?
(and sorry about saying 'sucked' so much... my kids a bad influence on me i guess
