I am trying too fix suspension on 02 raptor 80.
My nephew loves to jump, the suspension is way too stiff.
I went to raptor 80 racing looking for a rear shock did not find.
Does anyone know where I can buy a rear shock that will soften ride.
What other suggestions do you have too make suspension so he can jump??
Also what recommendations do you have for wheels and tires???

I had the same problem with my sons 05 80.
This is gonna sound strange at first it did to me. Remove the rear shock and set it on a shelf to collect dust. Then take one of the front shocks off and put it in the rear you gotta get some washers to shim up the new rear shock as the eyes a bit wider on the rear. It's fine the front end don't have a IFS so it'll work with one shock. Just don't put anyone on it wieghing 150 and jump it. If you click on my you tube link in my signature then go to other videos posted by me look at the ones of Nate my son his 80 you'll see the one shock up front and the other front shock out back.
