1994 CR125 shock rebuild I dropped the shim stack and wondered what is the correct order for reinstallation. Thanks

If you have dropped both comp and reb its a little more difficult. If you have only dropped x1 stack then its a little easier. The largest diameter shims go closest to the piston and then taper off. The only issue will be the cross over shim/s from low speed to high speed. If you measure the outside diameter and thickness of each shim in metric mm, I will give you the order.

I'm working now but will measure later today

Was it stock or revalved?

You need to remeasure everything because your calibrations are off. KYB shim thickness sizes are .11, .15, .20, .25 or .30. There are no .44, .42, .38, etc...

For instance, the 40mm OD are the face shims/low speed from the compression side of the piston and will most likely be .20.

Which side is compression and which is rebound and what direction on the shaft does it fit. So if my caliper is off .05mm, it all should be relative. How do I tell the hi and lo speed shims. Is it as simple as thinnest first and progress out? I remember the bottom side had a lot fewer shims.

Seems this was discussed before on a '93 cr125- also with slipdog's help. I don't know if they're the same fork. But, it might be helpful to read through. This stuff looks very complicated to me. Good luck.
