Maybe someone who sells these to us can reply and tell us exactly what was found to be the problem. Was it the "bore job", an "O" ring, a nut not tightened to spec., or the piston or valve, etc, etc.... Perhaps if you got one, and it was revalved, the "problem" has been taken care of with the revalve?????

It's not that I don't want to ride with you, but you ride too damn slow.

OK. I own 2 of these for my race bikes. How would a guy go about finding out what the model number is? I'm going to have to look into it I guess

"You can find the batch number on the shock absorber, stamped on the cylinder head, near the top

Yes it is the Fuji Nut on the end of the shaft that needs to be checked.

It's a pretty quick procedure in spite of the fact it requires almost 100% take-down of the shock body. It is not part of the re-valve procedure we do for changing the valve spec to work with linear race linkages so even if you have had a re-valve done you will still need to send any affected units in for the service.

Your Shock Part Number (KA340X) and the Serial Number are both stamped on the head of the shock on opposite sides.
