One of the two rear absorbers is wet with oil which means that the seal is broken and oil is coming out.
My conclusion: this is now operating with the spring only SO there is an uneven behaviour between the two absorbers.
I feel something strange in the handling of the bike but I am not sure if this is the reason.
What do you reckon?
more than likely explains your handing problems, especially if the the other end is all stiffened up. check your tyre pressures too.
it shouldnt mess you up too much due to the way its all interlinked but the fact that you are basically working on one shock will loosen the back up.
The problem is that although I have a spare set of shocks it is so time confusing and boring to change them for one simple reason:
BMW used some bolts that if 5 mm shorter would facilitate the change of the shocks in 5 mins max; NOW you need to take down the battery compartment etc in order to do so
That only take 2 mins to get the battery box out Al.Then its a really easy job to do,two top bolts two bottom bolts and your,e done
you can undo the compartment and lift it up without disconnecting the battery.
Rinaldi's shocks for C1, was my idea!!
On the Italian forum we have a service for revision of old original shock that are rebuilt by Rinaldi (this shop is about 15 km from my home).
No chance for front shock, unfortunately. In this case is the internal valve that crack (wrong project in original with no enough stop in the travel of internal piston) and the aren't spare parts for it.
I changed my front shock with a high level (and thery expensive) WILBERS shock.
looks like your original idea went around Europe as I got the info on a German forum :) Well done!!!
