Help! I just changed the seals on my 95 kx250. As I was re-filing w/ oil and bleading the damping rod, I noticed that one side has no compression resistance.

I am going to a mx class this weekend... can I ride w/ only 1 side having compression damping?

Should I try to fix tonight? What are possible causes?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!

It could be dirt holding open the compression shims on the base valve.Take the base valve out and look where the shims sit against the piston-is there a gap at all?
