It doesn't hold very much. One quart will do the job - with a lot to spare. The entire interior gets filled, but there is a sequence and procedure to filling without bubbles, so do a little investigating.

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.

I would say Yes.Your shock has lost oil and compression and now you are bottoming out everytime you go over bumpy terrain.The shock will need a rebuild or maybe a new shock altogether.

Hi there. To upgrade your old rear shock is a good idea, however very expensive. Makers like Koni, and Ohlins, will have a rear shock to fit your bike, but unless your willing to part with about $1000, then considermy second solution. Have your old rear shock re built, or re furbished, by a qualified suspension mechanic, for a fraction of the cost. It is also possible to customise, and taylor your old shocky to suit you. Example,shorten the spring?, add a spacer to stiffen it up a bit, less oil, or more oil?
I would look into a rebuild first, unless, like i say, you are prepared to spend about $1000 plus.
Anything you choose, will definately enhance your bike.
Good luck

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. has the rebuild kit. You will need the seals atleast. If i find anything else out i'll let you know. Hope this helps.
