so i was riding the trails of arizona and my rear shock snapped at the weld. i had no choice but to leave the bike there and start on the 12-13 mile walk back to my property and get my yamaha rhino to toe it back. i was pissed. from what ive heard therewas a recall on the rear shocks? i have a 98. but anyways i took it to the welders and they at first were cautious about even trying to weld it because the pressure of the oil canister, but he opted to try it. i came back to the shop a hour later and he said that if he welded it it would melt a rubber seal and it would begin leaking oil.... so now im faced with buying a whole new shock for 250-300 dollars or waiting till someone parts out a tw on ebay. i want a stock shock but at this moment i am desperate looking for any advice on aftermarket ideas! i really love my tw. ive looked al over and its like the shock is a antique. i cant find it anywhere.do any of you guys have a extra i can buy off you guys? or do you know where i can get a new one? any ideas will bee greatly appreciated!!!
