Please i need help !

I had to change my shock seal head on my 01'rm250 and i drop the piston and all the shims on the floor and now it's all mixed up. If someone know what the stock order of the shim please let me know.

It's not the first shock that i work on but this time i made a big mistake :(

A fast answer would be very appreciated since I was planning to ride on sunday. THANK YOU ALL

You may, if the bike had been ridden alot, be able to see oil stains(I really odon't know how to describe it, it is just markings on the faces of the valves). Sometimes, you can piece the valving together this way. I have before and gotten it right. You just see the dark area, and find a corresponding shim that fits in that area.:think

MXbiker, next time try inserting a small piece of wire into the shaft end before removing piston and stack, slide the stack up onto the wire and twist the end into a loop. This way, even if you drop them they stay together and in the right order.
