    Just wonder how much pressure of nitrogen should be in the rear shock? I was going to change the fork oil with Honda oil. I don't ride that much -the bumps kill me on these lousy roads. I am putting my tom tom rider gps on, the back roads its easy to get lost LOL! Going riding tomorrow. Glad to make a post!

    lol

    You should have got the details with the shock. An off hand guess is 130 psi.

    Isn't 130 a bit too high, I guess need to call DMR, I am installing a old tom tom gps that works but the wiring pain in ass

    Nitrogen filled shocks are very common, the nitrogen is in there to prevent the oil from foaming, but it is not intended to be adjusted unless the shock is fully rebuilt. Up around 200 psi is pretty common.
