re filling nitrogen in a fox shock

I am trying to get my revolt shipped but its 6" to high for the transport guy, I was thinking to let the nitrogen out of the shocks then refill when it shows up, airgas has the whole set up to refill for about 200.00 any thoughts or ideas it looks pretty basic to add nitrogen with the right set up any help would be great.

Yep. when you get it home, just jack it up under the ass or belly, to completely extend the shocks all the way out. Then put nitrogen to them and your good to go. Just be sure to jack the rig so that the shocks are fully extended before putting in the nitrogen.

Re: re filling nitrogen in a fox shock

thanks for the info, this sucks I bought this thing and am going through hell trying to get it shipped, I have a enclosed transport lined up but the revolt is to tall they stack em in the trailor I thought to just use ratchet tiedowns to compress the suspension but what the hell let the nitrogen out it should drop, I have ben looking into a set up to re fill I would think that would be pretty cool to add a little when the jumps are high or let a little out when needed, I talked to air gas they have the nitrogen and a 2 gauge regulator with the right hookup to the shock for under 200.00 from my understanding around 200psi on the rear around 170 on the front if I am wrong please let me know . thanks Brian

Keep in mind that if someone is letting nitrogen out, they need to stop when oil starts coming out! Otherwise you are going to have to put more in when you get it.

Brian,

The actual recommened pressure for the shocks are 225 psi for the front and 275 psi for the rears on a Revolt. Now this is recommended but you can go up and down depending on your riding conditions, the type of ride you want, or the size of the person riding it. It's your call but there's the recommended info for you.
