I dont think any of us have tested pressures on a DM4. Try it. If you get shootdown, add a shim.

You can buy a rebuild kit which includes adjustment shims for the Standard and Ultralite Adjustable Output Regulators.

I think I should be good. In the dm4 manual it says it can run anything as long as its not past 850 psi. Thanks rob!

While unscrewing my tank from the gun's asa, this happened (with the set screw in). Now I've unscrewed the set screw and am wondering what to do next. I need to use this thing!

I have a 68/45 ninja tank with an slp that was screwed in with the red loctite. I need to take it off to transfer it over to my 50/45 ninja tank and put the mid pressure reg on. I know with anything else you would heat the red loctite with a torch until it loosened up so you could unscrew it. How can I take the slp off without harming it or the tank?
Thanks

Hey, I have a Ninja 68 hpa with a pro reg. I screwed up the threads already so I purchased a replacement. The instructions call for ninja lube when installing a new bonnet and recommend ninja lube on the outer threads to prevent wear. The problem is I cant find ninja lube anywhere, not even online. So what else does ninja recommend; techt gun sav good? Also, I've noticed that when I screw it into my asa there is a bit of play, but there's no play with my pure energy tank.

Thanks

Loosen the set screws, tighten the bonnet back on to the reg by screwing clockwise. Retighten the set screws. I'd also put some lub on the exterior thread of the bonnet to avoid any binding with your asa which could be causing your bonnet to loosen when you unscrew it from the asa. Make sure the tank is empty as well (it looks so from the photo).

Dow 111 is the functional equivalent to ninja lube. If you are using it only on the exterior bonnet threads, a dow 33 based lube would work as well. If you're using lube on the interior of the reg, make sure it has no oil based component in it.

Red loctite ... ouch. Personally, I'd leave it alone, I've heard too many stories of tanks getting ruined when trying to remove a reg held with red loctite as it can strip the threads.

You might want to post the specifics of both your regs and see if Rob would recommend simply swapping bonnets and internals rather than trying to remove the reg body from the tank.

They should be tight but be careful not to over tighten then as you can strip the threads in the bonnet rather easily.

Check then periodically as they can loosen over time.

Sorry if its been asked before but what size oring do I need between the tank and the pro regulator? Mine failed this past weekend. We flipped it around and now it seems fine but want more for back up.

Edit checked manual and it doesn't show the part in the diagram.

Check to ensure that the regulator is fully seated into the cylinder and there is no
gap at the bottle neck, see illustration. All Ninja regulators come with a 112-70
buna o-ring to seal the reg to the cylinder as this is the most common o-ring
needed. If the regulator does not seat fully into the cylinder then remove the
112-70 buna o-ring and install the 015-70 buna o-ring found in the tool kit
supplied with your regulator.

Purchased a 77 at PSP Dallas with the special edition Pro Regulator made for the event. Occasionally, when I degas my marker (Geo3), the tank leaks out of the pin area. After I play with the pin for a bit, it stops. I'm not overly concerned, as I said it only happens occasionally, and I have been able to stop the leak thus far. I'm just seeing what the Ninja guys would do.

Thanks

I just checked out the PTC Adapter and it is a 2 piece design so it does look like it can be removed

How do you know it was screwed in with red loctite if you haven't been able to remove the regulator?

DO NOT TAKE A TORCH TO A BOTTLE. please, dont do this.

if you have any issues with taking a regulator off of a cylinder, we recommend that you either have a local pro shop or field do it for you, you get an RA# from Ninja and ship it to us to do it for you, or you visit us at any of the national events to have us do the work for you at our booth.
