raptor 700 front shocks

are the non-piggy back shocks from a 06 raptor rebuildable in anyway? Can hygearsuspension.com springs be installed in these shocks? i just want them to be a little stiffer as i installed +2 arms.

It's best you talk to 'jogaca', AKA Kevin. Lots of forum members use his shocks. He can re-valve and re-spring for your weight and extended a-arms, and,,, His prices are more then fair.

Stock pogos are not rebuildable unfortunately. You can get a set of YFZ 450 front shocks from the carbed models, which will lower the front about 1" or get a set from any 2007 or newer 700 R or SE and send them to Kevin for rebuild and re valving The 2008 and newer models have both high and low speed compression adjustment.

Just message him, sometimes he has some on the shelf to sell. Tell him we on the forum sent you.
