Nope - it was a rear shock from a ZX600. I got blasted cause I had not allowed the oil to settle after I pulled the shock out of a drawer. After I let it settle down, the air came out fine. A small soffee stirrer also facilitated the removal of the old oil, and the opouring in of new oil. The biggest thing to remember for the gas/air shocks is that you are only supposed ot put either 1. What the factory says it the appropriate amount of oil, or 2. If no factory recommendation, only replace the amount you drianed out. Number 2 does not apply if you have a gas/air shock that leaked all the oil out.
