Front shock options?
« on: October 22, 2021, 08:28:42 am »
Is there anything out there that bolts right in and looks stock?

I've got Elka shocks on 2 quads, and Works Performance shocks on the other. You can get 'em without reservoirs and paint the springs yellow if you want them to look stock.
They come set up for your type of riding and your weight, so they work WAY better than stock.
They're adjustable and rebuildable.

I'm using YFZ450 shocks on my 250's but had to mill the top mount on each side to fit.Seem to work well,maybe a tad stiff on the MX track but they can also be revalved exactly if you wanted to.
Can,t fix stupid.:)

400ex shocks will probably fit.  They are slightly longer than OEM LT250R shocks.  400ex front shocks are about 15.75" and LT250R front shocks are about 15.25".  I run PEP shocks for a 400ex on my LT with +2 arms.
