I wonder if they have anything like this for the dual shocks on the rear of the Reflex. Oh, and just a bit off subject, BRed, the light kit you have in your avatar, what is that? Looks awesome.

Klaus said he could build a replacement shock or custom front fork springs for any bike made.
The wind deflector in front of my auxiliary fuel tank is an Enduro road lighting kit for dirt bikes.....sold on eBay.

I haven't called them yet, and I haven't done the hardly drivable springs yet either.

The past two weeks I have been working on expanding my scooter stable by TWO :shock:

I have a friend who just bought a reflex last week and has offered me his '06 Met for $900, It has the oem extended rack and the factory accessory top box...

Two days ago another friend of mine offered me his '09 Ruckus for $800 :shock:

Then yesterday I found out that the Met guy offered his bike to someone for $700 who lowballed him at $500. He extended this offer to me, and now I am trying to take a title loan out on my Sable to buy both of them.

The one on #2 has about 1000 miles on it now, since I've used it to commute to work all summer.
It is the shock that would have come stock on the BR in a parallel perfect dimension. It was a little stiff for the first hundred miles or so, but got better with some wear. The internal parts have smoothed out very nicely over the miles.
I need to give it another 2up test.

With the bike on the centerstand, I backed the preload off to the point I could barely turn the spring by hand with the suspension unloaded for one up riding and ran the adjusters down 2-3 turns for 2 up riding

Most of the roads I ride daily to work have been resurfaced over the summer......
the YSS shock got a real work out during the paving process but now it's done!
For the last few weeks, I've been riding a 20 mile stretch of brand new pavement each way.

There's nothing in riding that the matches the feel of good rubber and a good suspension running fresh pavement on curvy backroads!! :banger:

OK a new YSS suspension test!!

Monday, Labor Day, #2 gets to run the Tail of the Dragon.

Van has a new Ninja 650R :shock: and wants to run Deal's Gap on it.
Rodney has wanted to run his KLR 650 down the Dragon for years, so..... we decided to make a day trip.
A yellow BR, a lime green Ninja and a red KLR will make a very colorful, if odd, trio for this trip.

I'll post results and I'll try to get some video of the run. :wasted:

I just can't see that old bastard on a crotch rocket :shock:

of course...

He was kinda odd on the custom kymco too...

I'm not sure he'd look right on anything this side some steampunk rat rod. Maybe one of them bikes with random shit attached where it has no business. You know, like something in the background on the movie Tank Girl. Maybe he'd look at home on Katman's BR... :wasted:

Dude is one hardass old biker. I hope to see him and you again next year.

Van wouldn't miss a chance to run his 2 strokers against some Rucks! :lol:

The first thing he asks is "Who's fastest here?"

Now he has a ZL 900 Eliminator, a 1500 Nomad AND a 650 Ninja.
.....and about 20 other assorted motorcycles!



Someone may get a chance to pick up his Eliminator or VStrom for cheap if he likes the Ninja....
I think he's gone KawDarkside.

What's the difference between these three models?

I would assume one is gas with piggyback reservoir, the others simply have adjustable springs? Are there any issues with piggyback clearance? I'm not sure I can find anything on the shock threads that specifies the differences between these models. Thanks in advance for your help.

The differences are explained here.........

http://www.yssusa.com/product-code-explain.html

all of the features add to the cost.

E means EconoTube
L means adjustable length

sometimes the letter's meaning is determined or modified by the letter preceding it....
for instance the OD model ($58.00) is a generic Foresight replacement using an aluminum tube and is not rebuildable.
All steel tube models can be rebuilt.


I think this is the model you want.....ME 302 395 T.
This one is assembled in the US from YSS components based on the specs of the BR shock, so it will be the least expensive.
Features mentioned above....
