    Is there an easy method to refill the fluid on rear shocks of my road glide?
    Mityvac hand pump is stuffed, and have had fork fluid everywhere trying variety of ways to put the 300 odd mls regquired in each of the standard rear shocks.
    Drained the old oil out, and is a pissy litttle hole to get new fluid into. Advice would be great, as only local joint here wants just under $200 for a cheapo hand held pump, as used on brake fluid etc.

    no idea how big your hole is [ the one on your shocks ] visit your local vet ,they might have a syringe large enough to flow some fluid and small enough to fit in the refill hole.

    Err well thanks Bruce. Been trying to figure out why, and ya know the simplest item should be scractched off the list before tackling the harder ones.
    The pissy little inlet hole had a tiny bit off shit stuck in it. All fixed.
    And - Yes I'm a dumb cunt. 
    Thanks for the end, point.
