I've decided I don't really like the feel of the stocker rear shock. I seem to spend a fair amount of time on wash boarded fire roads and this thing just cant keep up! When I am rolling over them up hill the rear end chatter like hell and it feel like I put the brakes on not to mention the breaking in traction is doing some hellacious things to the drive terrain. Let me say that I weigh 130lbs clothed and the spring rate is great, but the dampening sucks!! I think I am gonna start the search for something better. I see the blaster and other atv shocks and they seem to be viable options. What ever way seems to be best needs to be adjustable. I saw the r6 shock and that has my interest. Does anyone know what the stoke was of this thing? I have no interest in changing spring rate, ride height, or travel rather just want some good dampening. Any how thoughts are appreciated and I gotta say that fork is being watched outta the corner of my eye as well. Looks like its eating up another pair of seals. I suspect the stanchions are not as good as they should be and I dont really want to spend the cash to replace them. yz85 forks???? who knows whats next and maybe I outta finish the 6speed first.
