    just bite the bullet and buy the ohlins. it's expensive because it's worth it.

    you don't seem to struggle spending money on the grom(s), so why not just get it over and done with

    the ohlins / bushing combo makes for a very compliant rear suspension.

    Ya but he also loves experimenting so this is right up his alley.

    I'm also a bit interested to see how those cheap ones work out.

    Btw Cisco I have a YSS and am around your weight. I have no complaints. It keeps things planted and comfortable.

    I'd find it much more interesting if you would compare shocks instead of buying twice the same, say they are great until they break and are not so great anymore.
    Would be nice to see how a ''high end'' cheap chinese shock compares to a basic Kitaco shock.

    The shocks come with compressed air, reading up on other MC forum these shocks are sold that way and the compressed air deteriorates the rubber and the O-ring seals due to the moisture in the compressed air and the trick is to bleed out the compressed air and replace it with nitrogen. So that is what I'm going to do and dump the shock in a bucket of soapy water to see if there is any leaks, in fact I'm going to check the pressure of the shock when I get it so I know how much nitrogen pressure I should replace in the shock, I will also put the new shock in a bucket of soapy water to check for leaks than remove the compressed air and fill it up with the right amount of nitrogen. I will also find out what is the right compound to put on the rubber seals to keep the rubber pliable and not deteriorate at a fast rate from the bouncing around. If the shocks fail on to the YSS shocks which is also a gas filled shock and I assume filled with nitrogen.

    Yep DIY it, same as when I move on and start my next project for building me a e-foil board

    the yss is proven and dirt cheap, the best of the cheap shocks. I can't imagine running one of those 60 dollar garbage shocks.
    A bunch of old stuff that runs. 2stroke grom build...in process.. eventually...

    Save up and buy the Ohlins. If you're ever strapped for cash, slap the stocker back on and eat the $50 loss for a one-day sale of the Ohlins.

    If you were doing any track work, I'd probably go for the RB given reviews.
