Can you repair bike shocks?
It also can’t economically be serviced – while the pressure could be released, the shock stripped then rebuilt (assuming it’s not crimped closed), it’d need a Schrader valve fitting in order to be able to recharge the gas, and there’d always be the worry that the shock might not be perfectly sealed; it’d not be worth
How do I know if my mountain bike shocks are bad?
Weird noises coming from the shocks or forks that sound like grinding, clunking, and slurping. This is a sign that it may need to be replaced or in need of a service. All so if the rear shocks are swishing or slurping means that the damper oil is cavitated, in which case it needs to be replaced.
What PSI should my mountain bike shocks be?
Often yes, usually rear shocks run 100-200psi, but fork psi varies a lot, depending on the design. Get the sag around 25% (maybe slightly less sag in the front than the rear) and see how it rides (that’s what really matters), adjust on the trail as needed.
How do I clean the front shocks on my bike?
Clean your forks with water; a hose is best, but if you use a jet wash then turn the bike upside down first so, as not to force water inside the fork seals. Be sure to remove all dirt from the fork stanchions and around the seals, especially between the stanchions and fork arch at the front of the fork.

Why is my suspension so stiff MTB?
Preload is HOW STIFF is the suspension, and it’s related to how much force must be applied to compress it. More preload means you need more force (apply more weight) to compress the fork by a given distance or travel. Speed Rebound is HOW FAST the fork return to it’s uncompressed size after absorbing a shock.
Can you use wd40 on bike suspension?
Yes you can use WD 40 on your chain. The big problem is getting the WD 40 on the rubber seals in the rear wheel bearings, suspension bearings, and the BB bearings. The WD 40 can really clean up a chainit is too light to stick around long enough to act as a good lubricant
