KTM 640 Rear shock absorber service
« on: September 30, 2008, 08:21:46 am »
After having just introduced myself it is with immediate effect that I call on fellow forum members for assistance.

The problem is that my rear shock absorber started leaking oil - the shaft seems in good order - no obvious nicks or scratches - so it seems that the service on the shock should be quite simple.

I have 2 questions:

1) Is it possible to change out the quadring and replace the shock oil without having to regas the nitrogen canister?
2)If this is not possible could you please point me to someone/place that service shock absorbers in the Pta/Jhb area?

Thank you very much!

+ 100000 on Martin. Take shock out and courier it to him. He is the "guru".
