Even if the bushings still have the Teflon coatings on them, but are rough texture and not silky smoothe the forks will bind. One of many many things I have learned in 30yrs servicing suspension.

Yes you can use a needle or on some shocks it has a bolt head that the needle fits in the middle. If it has the bolt assy you can slowly unscrew and it will release the pressure, but having said that you will need the needle to refill anyway. It is also ... more »

You measure the gap when the ring is in the cylinder bore. Push it in the bore with the piston so it sits correct.

Added reply in a thread 2019 ktm 150sx shock question 5/8/2019 3:10 PM

After 7 hours it should be broke in, but not worn out. I have known WP shocks in the past do this. In my experience the piston rod nut comes loose, making the valving shims not clamp to the piston, which causes more oil flow.

Added reply in a thread Fork tool help YZ125 (please) 2/6/2019 6:51 AM

You do not need to remove it to do the seals. If you want to remove the cartridge to clean and remove all the oil properly then you need to remove it. Unscrew the cap, separate the cap from the piston rod, remove spring, remove dust seal and clip and ... more »
