    I guess I don't know my dirt bikes!!! I was looking for a small rear monoshock for a minibike project that needs some attention. I expected to get a small 8" to 10" shock, similar to what you'd find on a pocketbike, or something. Instead, I got this:




    Way too big for a minibike. However, I need a pair of rear shocks (or maybe front shocks) for my two-seater build. If the springs aren't right, I can always swap them out.

    So, is anybody using these shocks on their buggy? More importantly, are they rebuildable?

    Note: I should have checked the Internet first. Apparently they are rebuildable.

    Rebuildable, tunable and not a bad unit. No reason it can't be made to work and you have full adjustments on high and low speed compression and rebound damping.

    Springs may be funky to find? Not really sure on that comment but I'm guessing they're metric so there may be some adapters that need to be made? (brain storm thoughts and there's a possibility the lightning in the storm hit something vital in that thought process - although I'm not face down on the desk drooling so maybe there's hope... - coffee's kicked in just incase you wonder where this babble has come from. )

    So, my bread landed butter-side up? Thank goodness!!

    I've been trying to figure out what shocks to use on the back-end of my two-seater, so I guess I now have an answer.

    Rebuildable doesn't hurt either.

    The spring rate will be in kg/mm. You should be able to find the specs on that year and it'll show you what the spring rate is - convert to SAE and you'll have the rate in numbers that make sense. (to us on this side of the world)
