Shock-absorber check


  1. Check on existence of deformations or damages.
  2. Check plugs on wear or damages.
  3. Check on existence of signs of leakage 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 the following precautionary 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 utilization it is necessary to drill in it an opening 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 surely put on goggles can take off.

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