My rear shock is tired and needs to be put to rest. Will a YZF rear shock fit a 660? I know everyone does fronts, just wondering about rears.

Don't believe it does, Raptor shock can be had for $100, try the forsale section. They are also rebuildable and different rate springs can be had if your a bigger guy. The 01 has a remote ressie the 02 and up are attached to the shock.
I had mine redone to match some aftermarket fronts, it cost $450. This was TCS's rebuild and the ZPS conversion. This is the place I used but look around you may find someone local.

Firstraptor is right, the yfz450 rear will not fit the raptor.

I've done some research on this subject, and when the time comes, I plan on taking my shocks to TCS to have them redone. They will then be almost as good as most aftermarket shocks (I'm sure good enough for me) at about half the price.

Teraflx, the YFZ shock has two ears that fit over a plate and the bolt goes thru the shock first and the the mount back out the shock and then a nut. Where the raptor has the frame mount that sets on either side of the shock like the fronts.
Right? I think?

Yes, basically they are opposites of each other on the bottom mount.

If you have a 2001 i have found places closing out ohlins rears-these are the good stuff. I got mine for $320 for a $720 shock. Since i am 205lbs, i need the next stiffer spring ,but the shock works great!!
