Cool shocks for road riding

Hi,i run a 2001 660 on the road,(NO trailing).Iwas wondering if any one has any ideas on shock replacements for quick road riding.(All within the speed limits,officer).I live in Scotland,so we get lots of wind and rain.Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Pm forum member Jogaca. He'll set you right with solid information. Don't know if he'll ship overseas though.

So my best options appear to be get some 700s or yfz450s from the US as they are WELL overpriced over here.I had better start saving as all the best stuff is over there I haven't heard back from Jogaca but he's very busy

Anyone got any idea of a good front shock set up for quick road riding?

Your best option is to get KW springs for front and rear shocks. Since you are in europe aswell you can get them from germany. You are just changing the springs on yuor stock shocks and they lower the quad about 65mm.
