Will a rear shock from a 89 warrior fit on a 250? and if so would it be worth swapping? im aware the warrior has a resi shock in the back, didnt know if it would do anything positive or not...thanks :D

I'd do a Banshee rear if it will fit. Give me the dimentions of your rear shock, I will go see if it will work...

Okay, so, can you give me the dimentions of your rear shock? Eye to eye with the rear off the ground? And the space between the mounts?

Okay... so... go in your garage and measure it! I have a 350, 350 and Banshee have same dimentions, Banshee shock is better.

we run a modified ktm85 shock with a titainium yz 250 spring;) the shock is a dual piston. so it lets the bike act like one with a link suspension sweet!!!!!

Not sure if you got the dimensions yet, but these are the dimensions I got off my 2011 Yamaha Raptor 250 factory shock... ;)

Eye-Eye (Off the ground) = 14.5 inch
Bottom Eye Width (Where bolt goes through) = 1.25 inch

And just wondering, what is the difference between the Raptor 250 and the Banshee shock????

Me too:lol:

More travel, it is a big upgrade from the Warrior stock shock, so I can imagine what it would do to the 250!

Is the banshee rear shock a remote reservoir and adjustable?

No, it has a piggyback rezzie, very adjustable...
Hm, I don't know if a piggyback would fit in the small gap that we have at the top on the rear... ???
