CT70 Rear shock rebuild

So once I had my old shocks apart.

I sent these to scooter from the board.

And amazingly this is what I got back.

Check out that finish.

The springs and beercans got the powdercoat treatment.

I had to find the bushings and spacers. The wide parts are for the top shock eye and the narrow parts the bottom shock eye.

Work those into place.

Load up the shock in the tool.

Spring on.(That crank is a part of the drill press, unrelated to what I'm working on here.)

Beercan on.

Top of the tool on.

Crank down on the nuts until the nut shows up. Make sure the shock is extended and the rod didn't drop.

Hold the nut.

Add the top eye.

One together and ready to run.

Repeat and you have a set of faux-Öhlins.

  1. Firstly, thank you for the epic blog, most helpful. Secondly, I was under the impression that the rear shocks cannot be rebuilt - did you simply paint and replace the spring?
