    TRX4 Shocks

    I'm rebuilding the shocks on my TRX6, I'm filling in the oil like usual, then I screw the cap on, but when I compress the shock, it doesn't go all the way down and leaves 1/3 or 1/4 of an inch of space.

    Is there a way to bleed the shock properly?, or is another there a way to get rid of this?

    Thanks!
    Jumping: maneuver and pray it won't break.

    There is a trick to it.
    1)Pull the little rubber bladder out of the cap. 2)Compressed the shock about 3/4 of the way.
    3)Fill with oil until it's a little bit below the top. 4)Gently seat the rubber bladder onto the top of the shock and it should displace just a little bit of oil and leave no air under it
    5)Extend the shock just a bit and you will see it pull the bladder down into it just a little.
    6)Now that you have a seal gently put the cap on and that should create a pocket of air above the bladder and not leave any air in the cylinder.

    The GTS shocks are emulsion shocks and doesn't have bladders. The descrition above is for Ultra shocks (Slash, Stampede, Rally etc.) and does not apply to TRX4/6 shocks.

    This is how you maintain, optimize and fill the GTS shocks:

    It is also explained on page 25 in the manual:
