Product: Doppler S3R OLEO EVOLUTION
Duration Product Used: 3 weeks
Weight: 182
Price Paid: $184 shipped
Purchased At: mx-performance
Strengths: Comfortable ride, adjustable, looks AWESOME, fits great (no trimming of the clevis needed)
Weaknesses: Special pump needed to increase pressure, did not clear stock air box.
Bottom Line: It is definitely worth the money. I have rode other peoples scoots with shocks that have coil springs and they dont compare I'm sure there are some that might but I havent rode on them.

Overall Rating: 10

Product: RDR
Duration Product Used: 1 week
Weight: 255
Price Paid: $135.00
Purchased At: ebay
Strengths: Holds my up perfectly! No sag or anything and it is stiff..ride is so much better then the Daytona 270mm for my weight..
-can be used without an extension..
-adjustable length..
Weaknesses: pre-load needs to be adjusted pretty stiff to avoid hitting the stock kenda tires with the adjustment rings..
-air box wouldn't work with it if you had it installed.
Bottom Line: I love this shock! if you're heavy and need support and a good ride then your money is well spent here..
Value Rating: 10

here is a review of a Doppler shock i got last week:

Product: Doppler (black)
DurationProduct Used: 1 week
Weight: 2 lbs
Price Paid: 184.00 with shipping
Purchased At: MX
Strengths: god for two hundred pounders plus
Weaknesses: kinda plain looking as i really dig a big funky spring
Bottom Line: (ie. is it worth it/would you buy it again/are you happy with it/was it a waste of time and money) its a good option if you wiegh 200 lbs like i do or even 300 lbs like my son who was bottoming out the swift velocity shock
Value Rating: 7-8 i dont believe that if you pay the most you get an automatic 10
Overall Rating:7.5, it does exactly what i needed as advertised very smooth ride, i understand it get better after a few hundred miles are on it.

Great review on the RDR..I just picked one up myself, but have not put it on the bike yet. It looks like its built nicely, its good to see that it rides nicely as well ! Ill give a review once I get some miles on mine.

yeah I like my shocks stiff and it delivers..very nice ride..had to grind the one side where it connects to the swingarm so it would fit..and it's hard to line up the bottom bolt for it to thread into the other side..other than that install was pretty easy..and it absolutely smokes my daytona for ride quality at my weight..I haven't taken it into the trails though and that's where it makes or breaks the shock..time will tell lol...

CHP ZR38
Used for 2 weeks (about 200 miles)
My Weight :185
Paid just under $60
Bought from AHP Minis (free shipping on orders over $50)
Strengths: fairly easy installation, MUCH better ride, easy to adjust settings even after installed, and it looks good, too!
Weaknesses: none so far
Bottom Line, I'm glad I bought it and would recommend it. I should mention that this is the only shock I've had other than the stock one, so I don't have a lot to compare to, but it's definitely a big improvement over stock.
Value: I'm well satisfied, especially since shipping was free. I know BattleScooter has the Daytonas for about $42, but after you add the $15 shipping, the price is about the same.
Overall, it's a smooth riding, easily installed, good looking shock, and I would recommend it.

Product: Daytona (Chrome)
Duration Product Used: 3 Weeks, about 300 miles
Weight: 230 lbs...been carrying holiday weight for years now :DomoRuckRuck
Price Paid: $41.00 plus $15 shipping...so get a bunch of other stuff to make that shipping count!!
Purchased At: BattleScooterStore
Strengths: Looks great with my NH-303M Ruck :mrgreen: , Way better than stock, could fit while stock airbox is present with or without the extension kit.
Weaknesses: ...would have found out the first time i rode with it on. Maybe the chrome will chip over time...who knows, but i'll inform you when something does go wrong. :wasted:
Bottom Line: For the price of its functionality, it's well worth it.
Value Rating: 9/10 If this baby can carry my weight and not bottom out, then its done its job.
Overall Rating: 8/10 I'm sure the other aftermarket springs are a lot better, but when i got this, i just needed something better than the stock ones. I have nothing to compare this to but with many testimonials and my judgment...my rating is as is.

Weight: ?
Price Paid: $9.00 plus $13.00 S&H
Purchased At: Ebay
Strengths: Inexpensive. Fits with stock airbox.
Weaknesses: Age, but maybe it is better with time. Maybe a bit on the bouncy side of replacement shocks, possible needs more dampener.
Bottom Line: (ie. is it worth it/would you buy it again/are you happy with it/was it a waste of time and money) Yes, I would buy again. Unable to bottom out on any bumps. I weight 180 lbs. Thanks DandyDan for recommendation.
Value Rating: 10 of 10
Overall Rating: 8 of 10, signficant improvement over stock shock.

Can someone list all the aftermarket shocks that will clear the stock air box also w/o extension kit. Thanks!


X2

Please...

I just picked up a used '09 and have no intention of modifying the airbox or stretching the motor mounts.

I am torn between the Daytona which I know and like, the Kitaco that I sampled a similar one on a friends Met, and a YSS but I don't even know if it will fit. Also, I don't know of how many options I have with a stock airbox and length. I am running a 140mm rear tire but for the right shock I would go 130 if necessary to fit.

BTW the Daytona clears the stock airbox and 140mm tire.
