Just picked up my new Monkey today. Put on a few miles around town and already love it! Just curious, has anyone upgraded the rear suspension and found a rear rack that will work with that new suspension? I’m a bigger rider so a need some beefier shocks. i was thinking about some Ohlins but i still want a rear rack.

The Ohlins fit great and there was enough room to fit a rack. Some aftermarket shocks are a little too wide at the top to be able to fit a rack without modifications.

Awesome, thanks. I was wondering if I’d like the yellow springs on the blue bike but seeing it now it looks good!

Found some YSS shocks on E Bay, that had red springs (red monkey). Along with a factory looking rack.
Huge improvement in the ride. No interference with the rack.

I was thinking of painting the shocks blue, but since I got the fenders painted, it might be a little too much. I do like the splash of color.
