Rear Shock Recommendation

636 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Magilla
Hi all. Looking to replace my rear shocks with something just a tad stiffer and without the red springs. Black works fine for me. I see that Man in the Box has some standard looking ones (TB shock set) but they appear to be on backorder.

Can anyone steer me to a quality set that I can get going with? I'm 195 pounds if that helps narrow the field. I'd be willing to wait a bit if those Man in the Box ones if they are ultimately the best choice.

I've got these fitted to my Monkey. I'm 100KG and they are spot on. Never bottom out and the bike handles great, so much so that I haven't yet upgraded the front.

I’ll check them out, thanks.

I just bought these 340 mm shocks on ebay. The model wasn't listed but I'll post it when they arrive. I currently have a shorter pair that are all black installed but wanted red springs like OEM.

Edit: The model is DTG-PLUS RB220-340T-38-85P

Kitaco ones are cheap and better than stock.

I ended up with the TB ones for $109 and I'm very happy. Surprisingly good quality and instantly noticeable improvement. Not to mention the Black looks sharp on this bike.
