shock oil

Anyone ever changed the fluid in their gen 2 shock and recharged the nitrogen? The kawasaki manual says nothing about it.

Thank you. That is a very helpful link. I had it down to pushing the seal head down to get the clip out and it did not want to move. So I put some penetrating oil on it and let it set for an hour or so and gave it a good tap with a screwdriver and hammer and she broke loose. It was stuck good and proper but its apart now. Got to clean and inspect it later.
