(Notes from 2011 blog:ref: TotalRuckus ? View topic - YSS Replacement Shock for the Big Ruckus)


The ME 302-395 TL is one of the shocks that I have built for the Big Ruckus.
Another one is the MC 302-395 TL. It is the same shock with the same
adjustments, but it has a reservoir which separates the gas from the oil.
When riding hard, the MC will give you the better performance.
The price for the ME 302-395 TL is $ 254.00
The MC 302-395 TL is $ 294.00
S&H for either one is $ 16.00

It's probably a good idea to establish a contact and get the correct spring installed for your weight.

Pretty sure I am going to pony up for the Ohlins. Grom is going to be in my garage for many many years so I want quality parts on it.

The shock I got from kingofsoap is a legitimate YSS shock. I dont have the model number in front of me but it is differnt than the one that Tyga has on their site. The Tyga one is the top-of-the-line YSS with more adjustment features than than mine. That is why there is a differnce ini price. We are getting price gouged for Grom parts. If you look around, you will find that you can get a pair of YSS shocks for a Monkey for the same price as a single Grom shock.

I got the same YSS shock as Shifter, from the same guy. Indeed, it is a legit YSS shock. My issue with the seller was the painfully long shipping times. I see some pushback on Tyga, but I think Paul's prices are fair and shipping is fair. The quality of Tyga stuff is outstanding. It's coming from Thailand, halfway around the world, in 3-4 days. That's worth it to me. This ebay guy is charging quite a bit for parts and charges UPS rates to ship it on the slow boat to the US.

I paid $179 for that YSS shock. That's correct, right SS? I'd have paid that in the states, no problem. Until we get a steady supply chain in the US. I guess you have to pay to play. :wink:

I agree with all of this. I also endorse Tyga.
