Just picked this up a few days ago. 1988 Kawasaki ninja 600r. I haven't got a clue what this is and want to make sure I have it in the proper position...don't want to break anything.

In the Good Old Days when we were young and always short of money, we would 'recharge' the rear air shock absorber unit. I had GPZ900R but I think the same idea works.
You remove the air valve (tyre schrader valve) with a suitable dust cap or tool, then tip over and pump the very old, smelly, degraded oil out. Then using a tube and a large syringe, you can refill it with fresh oil: Cannot remember the oil spec but its very easy to do, will give you time to save up for a decent (£500+) afternarket replacement.

I believe ATF fluid will work.
