Rear shock absorber - replacing the seal head
Permalink  
 


Shock_completed.jpg

I am chuffed to be able to report that the joint project that TTR Steve and I did to rebuild a TTR250 rear shock (and to document the process so as to create a user guide) was successful wink

The guide is now online click here and, as usual with new guides, feedback will be appreciated!

Now that new shocks are no longer available from Yamaha, it is important that owners have a way to repair their existing shock.  If an owner doesn't feel able to do the work themselves then they can find out from the guide the correct parts to buy to give their mechanic to do the job for them.

Any questions, please ask!

Brian

Not a lot of interest in this topic it seems cry

Is there anyone out there with a shock to rebuild willing to test the instruction? wink

Alternatively, is there anyone that has done the job themselves and is willing to cast their eyes over the guide and feed back some (hopefully!) constructive criticism? If so, that would be really great biggrinbiggrinbiggrin

Should have the kits in the shop by the end of the weekend. This is good news that me and Brian did this, as new shocks are no longer available from Yamaha and it is good that owners can check the pressure in their shocks, before they go to a rebuild stage.

Another great how to smilesmile

I think it would be difficult to fully drain out all of the old oil and replace it with new oil without dismantling the shock - but I could be wrong!

Can I ask why you want to do this?
