Has any one tried the alu pivot point shock caps yet or the alu shock seals?
Shock Absorber Alloy Membrane Ring (909408) was optionally used for better seal between the older shock bladder and the shock cap. The was applicable to the older shock bladder shape.
I believe I read somewhere on mytsn that Serpent recently changed the shock bladder shape and the new ones do not require this alloy membrane ring.
When using the alloy membrane ring with the older shock bladder, you needed to modify the shock cap a little. The extruding part that normally keeps the membrane in place needed to be cut away.
The membrane will be squeezed through the ring and the shock absorber can be assembled as normal.
After this modification the membrane will not be disformed any more when the shock absorber top end is tightened.
