SOURCE: yz125 rear shock amount of oil on

The volume is less than about 1/2 quart - it's usually not measured going in since you fill the shock completely - there's no need to measure. Some guys assemble the entire shock, then fill with oil and cycle the shaft, then install the bladder cap last. My method is to install the shaft and seal head and the bladder, then put about 2 PSI in the bladder, then bleed through the compression cap. My method is a bit more complicated to explain, but it's effective at eliminating ALL the air from the oil and it keeps the bladder from being installed in a collapsed state.

As far as the nitrogen charge - 145PSI is stock. 130-160PSI is typical.

Generally done with spring tension adjustment, If the shock is a gas shock, and is worn out, just replace it, you may have some luck by having some nitrogen put in (BY A PRO!!!!!!)

Kx250 rear shock is out of oil how do i add oil to it


If the bike is real bouncy with no dampining you need to have shock rebuilt you cant just add oil to fix.Most rear mono shocks have a little bottle of nitrogen gas on side of shock.When shock seals go bad the oil and gas leaks out. Most times it is cheaper to find shop to rebuild shock then buying new one.Mono shocks can run anywhere from 250.00 to 500.00$.you can get rebuilt for about 100.00 to 150.00$ depending on parts needed.

All spring no shock


Your rear shock has oil in it that is a measured amount. But...also has a nitrogen charge. If this leaks out, you need to get the rear shock rebuilt.

Why do you use nitrogen in the rear shock? what will happen if i put air in it instead?


Nitrogen is used for it's high pressure and lack of moisture,Air will work,but you can only get about 125psi and alot of moisture and 125psi will not be enough pressure.

How much oil do i put in the rear shok for a yz250


You can change it. Im looking for the correct amount to do it myself. I already pulled mine apart and bought a rebuild kit for it. Comes with a new nitrogen bladder, o rings for the seal, and a few other necessary items. Just remember to measure where the jam nuts holding your spring is so you can put it back in the correct location. As for the nitrogen i heard 150 psi. I'm fortunate to work at an offroad racing shop so i'm just gonna fill mine with nitrogen there, but i dont think you should get charged too much at a regular bike shop. Rockymountainatv.com has the rebuild kit. You will need the seals atleast. If i find anything else out i'll let you know. Hope this helps.
