If you put the adjustment down to 0 before disconnecting the hose you won't lose any oil.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

having done top off and tested, it loads much, the ride is better, but i still need to run at near 25 to get decent feel from rear end and not get jolted by all the road imperfections.
I believe you said used shocks up to 2018 will fit this? I have seen 2018 complete units on ebay from trike converters, that i would need to ship in to uk. before i do that, Can you or anyone confirm, do they straight replace? will i need to do any mods to swap over and will there be any difference in usage if i hook up the the preload switches?
Thanks

I don't think 2018s will fit but up through 2017 will, no difference in the connections.
