Step 6: Disassembling the shock protection

The shock protection needs to be dismantled in order to oil the cap jewels. We used a modified black oiler (on the right side of the linked overview picture) to open the lyre spring (brass).  Basically this special tool is a fine oiler with the rhomboid tip filed round.

Please be careful, those lyre springs and cap jewels are extremely light and small and they can fly like jet planes...it is maybe a good idea to have some spare sets of shock protections on stock, they are really really easy to lose.
