Default What was rattling in my shock?

     

My shock off my 89 cr250 was rattling , so I took it apart and found this.
I looked in the service manual in the shock section and could not find these parts in any of the diagrams and pictures of the actual disassembly .
I put the shock back together and now I have to fill it with oil then take it to the shop to get a charge of nitrogen

Any idea what these were?

My guess is, parts of compression or rebound adjuster. It would have came out of the back of the compression adjuster located on top of the shock or from inside of the shaft. Most likely the compression adjuster.

it looks like there is no way anything could have came out of the top adjuster, and i dont know about the inside of the shaft.

the shock worked perfectly with those things rattling around, so who knows? maybe the mechanic shop that rebuilt this last may coulda put some extra things in there by mistake?

Here is the parts break down of that shock. I agree with stated above being for the compression adjuster.

i looked in my oem honda service manual for these parts and could not find them anywhere. not even in the big exploded diagram that shows every single part. (even more detailed than the parts diagrams online)

They are probably not on the diagram because they are part of an assembly. They probably dont sell it seperately.



Parts of #20. No longer available.

Yeah, the compression adjustment will most likely be gone and will be quite soft.

I sent the picture to my suspension guy. He said the only thing he recognized was the spring, and that the spring might be the compression adjuster spring. The rest of the stuff he said "that doesn't look like anything that belongs in a shock."
