how to de-pressurize remote canisters

Hi Guys,

I will need to de-pressurize my remote canisters on the moton 3 way suspension that I have in order to route the canisters in the engine bay.

Has anyone done this before? Are you able to drive the car with the canisters disconnected or depressurized?

Would a performance shop be able to re-pressurize the dampeners?

Not sure how to depressurization them, but I would definitely not drive without gas pressure in the dampers.

Here is what you do on the JRZ external reservoirs, can't imagine those being much different. You use the screw in the back to depressurize.
Here are the actual instructions attached
Another thing you have to be aware of is that a lot of shops do not have the nitrogen or the necessary attachments to fill your canisters back up so I bought my own. Let the experts do that for you if you're not sure how to and like the guy above said don't drive the car with the reservoirs empty

Thank you so much for the feedback.. just to confirm the bleed screw is the one at the bottom of the canisters correct? and you use the same valve to re-pressurize?

where did you buy your tank, regulator and line? Is that a pressure gauge that is inline with the line?

Yes that's the bleed screw (at least for my setup)
I got the tank with nitrogen at a local welding supply store same with the pressure regulator it had to be able to handle the required psi and it has to be for nitrogen specific
The actual adapter I had to order from JRZ directly it was like 125$
Total for the entire setup was like 350-400$ but it's yours to keep.

We have nitrogen at our facility - we're authorized dealers for AST/Moton/JRZ.

PM me when ready to recharge and we can get you set up.
