no one will explain how to do this, you need special tools, and you need to be able to charge the shock with nitrogen when your done, its not just as simple as hitting it with a shot from a welding shop and checking it with a pressure gauge from a car.

revalving and shimming a shock is something people make money off of, its not really something that knows what they are doing is going to share with anyone.

Thanks for your concern on how capable we are when it come to mechanics. Your right people do make money off of rebuilding these, but at one time there were people making money jetting the carb and putting more horsey's into these motors. Some posted how to do that and the mechanics are still busy fixing things. All I'm saying is if it's a forum promoting the rider and his Yamaha then why shouldnt we tell all we know. I'm not looking to turn a buck...I'm trying to save the dime we have. If you need to send a pdf privately , then go ahead.

You can probably try the Race Tech gold valve kit. Retails for about $160 and comes with a video explaining how to do everything.
