No No No
Please don't try to even crack open the main accumulator sphere with
the pressure on, you only need to do this with the rear suspension
spheres and this is to stop the cylinders from moving.
Undo the 12mm bleed screw on the regulator by 2 turns max.
Using a wrench, undo the sphere.
Remove the O ring from the grove.
Fit the new O ring in the grove,
Screw on the replacement sphere, as tight as you can get it by hand
Start the engine and run for approx 2 mins
Tighten the bleed screw.
The best tool for the job is a band wrench from Pleiades
Or give them a ring on 01487 831239
I have used and abused mine for years and still aint broke it.
Recon spheres ? How does that work then ?
I have allways used recon spheres without any worries again from
pleiades, the spheres are guaranteed for 2 years unlimited milage!!
They dont have new membranes as they are sealed and I dont think that
you could replace the membranes, but Pleiades tell me that the spheres
are all inspected before re pressurising, thats why they can give them
a long guarantee
Sorry if this post comes out twice, but I had an error message with the
first time I replyed!!!
