    YSR Rear Shock

    I am building a YXR100 and wanted to get a little more ride height on the rear. I am most likely going to have Works make me a custom rear shock, but was looking for some input on the pros and cons of doing so. I am a 260lb rider and the stock shock isn't doing it for me. I also have an extended swingarm on it (+3 if I recall). Any thoughts?

    The 3 over arm is what's making the shock soft more leverage less spring. I am going to use a 3 over arm on my YSR and was thinking of retro fitting a pit bike shock onto the bike.

    Anyone know which one will fit and or work? I don't know of any pitpikes with suck little travel in the rear shock. Once my bike is a little further along I will mock it up with something to see how big I can go.

    ready2fight is correct the 3" over is was softened the rear,with The works shock you should be able to stiffen the rear,

    as for more ride height I removed the rear shock mount and added a spacer then welded the shock mount to the spacer. I was able to raise the rear 1 - 1 1/2.here is a pic after I got the shock mounted



    here is a stock set up so you can see it definately raised the rear.





    good luck on your build, keep us posted

    Here is My ysr200, and some action pics. Durring the winter I am putting douglas rims, a new master cylinder, and powdercoating the frame, swingarm, rearsets, and clip ons. Then she's done
