    Do these shocks make my butt look big?

    I wasnít really happy with the stock shocks. I just upgraded the shocks on my T120 and didnít know what I wanted to do with the stockers. It turns out they are about a 1/4 inch longer than the Monkey shocks and bolt up. They are much firmer. Think Iím gonna try them out for awhile. Anybody go with any other non Monkey specific option?

    Nice find! I just can't justify paying $500/$700 for a pair of Monkey specific shocks. Any idea what the stock Monkey shock length is with no load?

    Yeah, that is where I was at. I just measured one and it is 13 1/4 from the center of the eye. I’ll bet there are a lot of other options out there.

    The std shocks are 332mm eye to eye, I have fitted a set of Takegawa 330mm shocks to my Red Monkey, they look like the std shocks with the red springs fitted, they have adjustable spring preload and the shock body is chrome, they are a firmer ride, the cost was $112 AUD for the pair.
