OK so I bought a used shock which appears in good condition but I have a question: How does one know if there is still nitrogen inside and at what pressure? I think they are charged at about 200 psi. Has anyone checked into this?

I can see I've sparked curiousity but no replies. Hmmmmmmm....... If there is no way to verify the presuure is good, I'll send it in to get it checked out. No point in installing if you have no idea if it is any good.

No way to know without a nitrogen setup. If it were mine, I would take advantage of it being off of the bike and change the fluid then have it recharged at your local MC shop.

Putting good fluid in and doing a good bleed will allow you to run somewhat lower pressure. I run 150psi.
