A guide to revalving CRF1000 shock. This process is similar to many shocks. Tools required, with shock off. 17mm spanner, Picks for circlips, Schrader valve tool, Spring compressor, Blade screw driver, Seal head depressor. (Use split pvc tube, if you don't want to buy tool). Torque wrench, preferer for proper nut tightening. Vice, Air compressor. Nitrogen. This can be recharged at auto aircon shop. Need to get the spring off. Will need a spring compressor for this task.

Good Idea to turn both comp and rebound adjusters to full soft positions. Next, must release gas from chamber. Remove valve core to ensure all pressure is released. Push down on bladder to expose circlip. Remove circlip and bladder.
