I just found this thread....how did I miss it?  ???

These Group Buys are making me go broke! Probably gonna have to do this one too. I made the mistake of riding a rappy that had good shocks on it. Can't go back now.

People with good shocks should be shot, how dare they entice those of us with crappy or mediocre shocks by letting us riding their atvs.   ;)

Hi Josh, thanx for extending the GB on the shock rework.  :thumbs:

I already have the front dual and rear single springs for my weight and was curious about pricing to service and revalve all three? Are you using the RT Gold Valve kits in this revalve pricing?

Cost to do just revalves, and rebuild is $345.99. I am using my own piston valves and shim stacks.

Sounds great Josh.
Does that include the T-shirt and shipping?
Are your piston valves built with the same high flow design currently being used by RT, GTT and others?

  Will keep this in mind, would be nice if my rear with the +6 was redone.

Price on a revalve/respring on yfz450 shocks would be as follows:

This is for the pair not just one single shock.

Labor: $70
Oil: $20
Revalve: $175 (includes new high flow piston valves)
Respring: $209.99
Seals, o-rings, etc. are extra. I will make a recommended list of parts to put back in and call you for confirmation before installing.

Total: $474.99

I agree. What a bunch of crap. I was perfectly happy with my inferior stock shocks. Now I know why I'm having such a hard time keeping up with him.

Josh, shocks are pulled off and will be on their way to you tomorrow. Thank you Josh and thank you RS for setting up this GB.  :thumbs:

Probably need to be more specific about what the stock shock is, though it's quite possible you're throwing good $ after bad if it's a yamaha oem pogo stick (assuming of course it can be done).


I have a couple of rear shocks lying around.  A few OEM 660 rears, 1 OEM 660 rear with an elka dual rate conversion (and I think elka components but not sure) and a rear elka for the 660.  Any suggestions from the peanut gallery on what I should rebuild, and if I'm going to replace all the innards and springs anyway, how much worse can the OEM shock be than the aftermarket if they have the same components?

You can put a remote reservoir onto the existing reservoir. We run a remote reservoir on the existing reservoir on one of our motocross bikes. It allows for better cooling and it also has it's own radiator like piece that circulates to keep heat away. If you look at James Stewarts' yz450f he has one just like it. The remaining parts you can't see are routed into the air box. I think it is overkill though because you can get great results with an extended bladder cap for about $100 less.

Can you do the YFZ450 R models? Does this include a dual rate spring on the front or rear? are all the internals switched out with better ones aswell?
