I think that every single person on this forum should send the duck $20 as a thank-you.

well then, thanks Johnny.  Duck: I've put a stop-payment on my check that I sent to you.  You cannot cash it till your assigned tasks are completed.

  Thanks all for the Works info.  Puts me on the right track to do some troubleshooting for a possible leak.

I am presently rebuilding a works shock for my K75.  Works closed about a year ago and has supposedly reopened as Worx.  I got parts and rebuild info from Thor's Evolution Suspension Parts:

http://www.evolutionsuspensionproducts.com/

They also have the manual online:

I have tried to email Worx a week ago, but so far have not received a reply.  I wonder if they have gone under again.

Hope they are still in business, I have a Works on my '91 R100RT.

I might try calling next week. 

The shock on my K75S was one of the last jobs they did before they closed the first time.  I remember talking to the service mgr. about getting it shipped before they locked the place up.  Almost lost it.  Took about two months to get it rebuilt if I recall.

Fortunately, I'm doing the work myself this time.  I just have a question about the piston valve springs.
