the shocks came off a 2006 YFZ 4 fitty and they only have one ride on them. my buddy eric races and replaced them immediately after buying the bike. ill let you guys know tomorrow how much better they feel as im going riding tomorrow and eric will be adjusting them for me as well. but as for just riding around a little they feel great.

How did you end up liking these? I'm in the middle of installing mine. Just need to do the upper mounts.

I weigh 170 pounds, and run 05 yfz shocks valved for my weight, and they work great. Just havta wonder how much better the aftermarket shocks perform! Instaling a pep steering stabilizer next week, can wait to see how the shocks and stabilizer work together.

Well I just finished installing my 450 shocks and I love them. My buddy thinks there to stiff. He's about 225lbs. But I'm 285lbs and I think they feel great. Did some jumps that noise dived without bottoming out or hurting me. The only problem is that the rear end seems way to soft now. I need to call TCS.

My friend has Elka's w/zero preload on the front and rear of his 2001, along with the Elka Rear Linkage. That thing jumps so smooth, and the rearend will squat when taking off to help keep it from wheeling. But thats $3000 worth of Elka stuff.

I'm a 180lb squid......is this a mod anybody could make GOOD use of...or is it more for the advanced rider?
It's good for anyone what doesn't want to pay $600 or more on adjustable shocks. I'm just a back yard rider, and I like them.
