FZ1 Gen 2 - rear shock
« on: 29 November 2018, 08:33:45 PM »
Off to the tip at the weekend - just checking that the old shock of the Gen 2 can't be rebuilt? The spring on it is grey/silver while the 2nd hand replacement I put on the bike about 2 years ago is yellow and a bit harder.
Looking in manual I didn't see any spring rate/color charts - any ideas?


Many thanks

The standard shock has a silver spring. As far as I'm aware the spring can be replaced on the standard shock, I just don't think they can be stripped and re-gassed like an aftermarket one

You should be able to rebuild/regas the standard shock.  I have done it to the std Gen 1 shock, its not a problem.  Any suspension place would be able to do it really.
