The rear shock on my -90 250YZ are in a big need of clean new oil.
A quick look in Eric Gorrs "bilble" tells me that it's not that simple...
I do all the other work on my bike but the oil and bleeding thing seems a litte hard to manage whit out your own nitrogen bootle.

Is there any other way to bleed the rear shock?

thanks in advance!

Yes - I know I have to presurize the bladder with nitrogen after everything else is done.
But can I manage whitout the nitrogen untill that last moment?

Alot of people do what you are asking.Do a shock rebiuld as per instructions and use compressed air in place if N2(carefully) then take it to a friendly local dealer/suspension guy and ask him nicely to replace the air with nitrogen(ie let air out and regass):)
