Rebuild air shock?

Post by cowboy450 »

1990 1500, right rear shock started pouring oil. Research says I can replace the oil seal and be good. Has anyone done this and how much oil and what type to put back in? Thanks

The Goldwing is not an old mans bike, it is a wise mans bike. Sometimes that wisdom comes with age.

Here is a helpful article. It is a very simple job and I used Automatic Trans Fluid, I believe it was Lucas 10W.
