How To Take Apart The HyperII Regulator
So you've just got back home from the store, or it shows up on your door step-whatever means of transportation occured, you have a new HyperII Inline regulator. Worries aside, this is a very good regulator. However, you have no idea how to take it apart. This guide will teach you how to properly take apart the regulator, as well as how to maintain it.
This is a MUST HAVE. Whoever put my regulator together at DYE must have had a personal grudge agains it or something, because I could barely get it apart with my strap wrench, so this is a handy tool to have around.

1. Put strap wrench in the middle section of the regulator. Take the 5/16th Allen Wrench and put it in the bottom section of the regulator, where the velocity adjusted. These two sections will unscrew.
2. After unscrewing the first section, pull the second section towards you. It should slide off.
3. With the 3/16th Allen Wrench, unscrew the brass velocity adjustment screw until it comes out.
4. Take the 3/8th Allen Wrench and put it in the top of the regulator where it would screw into the marker. With the strap wrench, un-screw it. It will come apart.
5. Take the larget part of the regulator and set it down, so the skinny part is facing up. Get a 3/1th Allen Wrench and stick it down the skinny part. After you feel the Allen Wrench hit part of the internals, push a little harder. You should hear a slight thud. This is the reg piston falling out of the regulator.
6. Lift up the large part of the regulator. You will now see the reg-piston as well as the Belleville Washers.
7. Clean out all of the grease DYE puts in the regulator, and re-lube it. The lube or grease you use does not matter much, as long as it is not the DYE grease. That stuff is like tar. Make sure you put a thin
coat of grease on all of the components.
When you put the belleville washers back into place, they MUST be in the correct order. The correct order is as follows. ()()()(). It should look like this:
That's it! You're done. Do everything in reverse order to put it back together. I do this every month just to be safe. It isn't wise to skimp out and not to clean your regulator, it is a very important part of your marker.
