Shock-absorber check


  1. Check up on presence of deformations or damages.
  2. Check up plugs on deterioration or damages.
  3. Check up on presence of signs of leak of oil.
  4. Replace any faulty parts.

At work with the back shock-absorber in which there is a gas under a high pressure, it is necessary to observe following safety measures:

  • Not to assort the shock-absorber.
  • Not to place it in fire.
  • Not to store in its places where it can become hot.
  • Before recycling it is necessary to drill in it an aperture in a place specified in drawing by an arrow, and to let out gas and oil. For this purpose put the shock-absorber sideways.
  • Gas in itself is harmless, but at its exit the shaving formed at drilling, therefore necessarily can take off put on goggles.

"And": drill an aperture in diameter about 3 mm (0.12 inches).
