    I'm sure I've got a knackered shock off my old Ktm 450, I'll try and dig it out. You can have it to send off for refurb

    Ross in motopro in churhvillage
    a rear shock needs to be filled with nitrogen and the air gap set not really a diy job

    How often do you all get your shocks serviced, I asked in Mounters, and Wayne said don't bother spend your money in the shop instead.

    Everything tells me the oil needs changing at least once a year and nitrogen recharged.
