This looks like the same one I have on my MSX, it is a pretty decent ride!
Not that I'm aware of.Piggyback set up, that should hold plenty of shock fluid, run cooler and have very little shock fade. Nice choice, did they offer different spring rates?
Yes it is.Is the length the same as the stock shock?
Thanks. $179 plus shipping. I got it from an ebay seller in Thailand called Kingofsoap. It took 30 days exactly to arrive. I won't use this guy again. I am happy with the shock though.Great write up. How much was the shock? Where did you get it from?
Yea, no more business for that one, from me.I ordered one like that from kingofsoap (the ball washer) over a month ago and still no love....
Great write up, Tony!
That's a good idea. I wish I'd have thought of that. opped out:I wanted to add something to Tony s great write up. It helps to use a small automotive jack when working on suspension. The "scissor" type jack that I use takes the load off the suspension and lets you just slide the bolts out. You can also do minute tweaks to raise or lower the bike while lining up the bolts back in the shock mounts. I also use this jack when swapping engines in my minis - very handy.

Also I can confirm that this YSS shock is 1cm longer than stock.
You can accomplish the same thing by placing the jack on the rear wheel and raising it against the bottom of the seat. Do that before removing the bolts.
Now you have a more stable situation. The bike isnt up in the air balanced on one precarious point while you get the new shock ready.
