Looking good! However, it may be wise to remove the grease. I was inclined to do the same on mine, but per the AMP/Mongoose owner's manual the delrin bearings and nylon washers do not require lubrication and doing so may only serve to attract more debris and wear the pivots more quickly. :cry:

I was also a big advocate of the Risse upgrade on my SAB, but after rebuilding the AMP shock on my B2 and putting some miles on it I now much prefer it. The Risse is definitely lighter than just about any other coil-over unit, but not the AMP, so there's no weight savings upgrading to the Risse. Furthermore, the ease of rebuilding the shock yourself (I've had no seepage/leakage issues) and not being concerned with air pressure are two big pluses. I'd suggest that if you're considering an air fork up front then go ahead and also consider the Risse upgrade to match, but if you decide to go with an AMP fork I'd definitely keep the AMP shock in the rear. That's my two cents anyway :roll: .
