WP Rear Shock Rebuild

Hi, After reading through the site on occasion and been thoroughly entertained I have just joined.
Ive read somewhere on here, but cant find it again. I think it was nzberg that there are 5mm schrader valve bodies to convert the resovoir fill valve. Can anyone point me to where i can get them from.
Im also looking for parts diagram, manual for a WP 4681 rear shock.
Thanks for any help

Have you tried the doc? to point you in the right direction...look down main menu to Owner's Doc. then follow menu to rear suspension. or if you tried that ;go to links and there are a few web links on there...

Yeah Ive looked all through the docs and links. There is mention of a schrader valve being fitted and caution on the chain hitting it, but cant find out just what I need.
Where to get valves and manual for shock. Thanks for any help

I think if you want to fit a schrader valve you will need to install a bladder kit, both WER and Racetech do bladder kits from memory.

4861 bladder kit

Hi, HarcourtO_O.....
This is the link to Factory Connections site and the bladder kit info. I live in Maine, they are about 60 miles away in Rochester, New Hampshire, had them rework my forks and shocks for woods riding rather than MX. My '98 Fc has a 4681 MX. Might want to give them a buzz.
Where are you??

Harcourt,
I've yet to come across a 5mm to Shraeder conversion- but thats not to say they are not out there.

Most drill and tap for an 1/8 BSP to Schraeder "tank valve" or you can also go for an modified steel valve like the pic in my gallery.

If you have some lathe and silver soldering skills a 5mm to Schraeder conversion would be a simple task- negating the need to drill your reservoir, but would end up protruding from the ressy a lot more than the other options.

there is also a high pressure valve available that you screw on the schraeder valve, charge to 175 pounds per square inch and then release. this is VERY important. you don't want any HiiiiiSSSSSSSSSSSS no do ya!!!!

i've asked maddel to host it.

word from the pro tuners is that a bladder behaves well but to stick to original is better - just. with the two items i mention it suddenly becomes a whole lot easier!

and NZberg does have the shortest or so he says and i'm not going to argue!

Also keep in mind that Race Tech sell a fitting/bolt that screws into the standard reservoir for filling with a standard nitrogen needle

http://www.shocktreatment.com.au/ktmmods.html

http://www.motionpro.com/motorcycle/too ... eedle_kit/

Just another relatively cheap/simple option.Advantages being no drilling/tapping and doesnt protrude from the ressy.

Not sure Taff- I've always been tempted to price one, but I never have.......
Have a look on the Race Tech USA site- they might be on there as well ?.
