The gas refill is the hardest part Cus.
I'm keen to see who's got some info.

Me too Donsy, someone out there must have a manual or experience to share. Had my 1078`s shock done by Terry Hayes and am very happy with it and could go down that path again but like doing stuff myself. Besides the money I save I can spend on Guinness. (insert your disgust here)

Another question , my spare brutale shock is approx 10mm shorter than the F4 shock if I use it while waiting to rebuild the original, can the difference be made up for by adjusting the ride height adjuster without any adverse effects on suspension travel ? Are all F4 shocks the longer oa length ?

The gas charge is just nitrogen and can be filled at most any hydraulic workshop or even a service guy in a van (pirtek, enzed, rexroth etc.) providing they or you have the right adaptor

From me experience the F4 shocks are taller that the Brutale ones Cus, will have to check the manuals to confirm for sure. You'd get real close with the ride height adjuster I recon.

Thanks Terry, I've never trusted my own skills enough to redo a rear shock.

Me neither but I have had them re-gassed on occasion just for peace of mind?

Any internal work i needed was done by Terry Hay at shock treatment
