Reply To: RSM Replacement Advice Needed

Nicolas Moss

I made them public in my feed. Honestly, FB makes me feel really old.

Anyway, I figured out that the new dust tube “snaps” onto the new bump stops. In the process, I had to take the shocks out again. So I’ll be ordering new mounting nuts, and while I’m in there, I might as well get the proper washer for the top. At least I can do that with everything still installed.

It seems the lower cupped washer really is just a free floating “cap” for the bump-stop. The RSM sits directly on the lip of the shock rod. I’m getting pretty good at taking the shocks in and out.
