That's why I was asking if installing "upside down" was ok. The instructions for the viking have the adjuster knobs at the bottom.Normally the shaft always goes to the bottom, I notice the sticker goes either way though. The compression/rebound adjusters would be easier to get to the other way up.
Yeah, I've got no idea, I guess it would depend on how much oil is in there compared to gas, and whether the dampers could still pick up oil if they were upside down.That's why I was asking if installing "upside down" was ok. The instructions for the viking have the adjuster knobs at the bottom.
According to a video on 814 website he states the shocks can be installed in either direction depending on preference or clearance issues.The 814 shocks are so much better than stock. I've seen several pictures of them installed upside down of the instructions on here. I can also tell you I could not get a straight answer from Craig at 814 utv suspension on weather that was ok or not. I installed mine per the Yamaha Viking instructions
