The dampers are oil filled, but you never need to change the fluid. You simply slide the dampers in and out to adjust the damping.

Sliding the damper changes the springs leverage on the damper, and the leverage of the spring rate/ride height screws on the spring. Sliding the damper out (more gap) is more damping and a stiffer spring rate simultaneously. Changing the screws (B) only changes the spring rate.

Mechanical Advantage FTW!!! Flex your engineering muscles!!

On a serious note... It's nice to finally have a distributor to service and support the NA market. I haven't seen this much interest and activity in some time. I wish all the Awesomatix drivers the very best at the upcoming ROAR Carpet Nats!!

thanks for your answer, can you explain it to me compared to a conventional shock? spring/oil.

thanks

Sliding the damper out would be like putting on a stiffer spring, and putting in thicker shock oil at the same time. Sliding the screws would be changing just the spring. You can use a combination of these 2 to change just the "shock oil". Hope that helps.
