    What an XR100 rear shock looks like when cut open?
    I did, so I cut one open. I will be putting it back together too.

    Almost identical to KW car shock.
    Put stiffer spring on the top of that shim, or more preload :)

    You can see the small spring at the bottom? That is a cone shaped one. That is the compression valve. I might have to get a shim that will go under it. Ha/

    No, that is check valve. Compression is still in the tube.

    You are right. I forgot about the base valve. Haven't torn into that part yet.
