yfz 450 shocks on 350 raptor
« on: June 15, 2008, 05:14:43 PM »
after yesterdays ride, ive come to the conclusion i want new shocks, but i dont want to spend a fortune on new ones, but after me and devan talked about it a little, he mentioned a thread from the "other forum" lol that a guys found a 350 for sale with yfz 450 shocks on it... anybody care to shed some light on this situation? is it possible? will it help the ride at all or will it mess up things so much it will be worse?

shit I dont have the elkas anymore :lol:
I can you tell you for sure a 450 rear will NOT fit.
I'm guessing the 350 had a widening kit like mine had but with a shock conversion kit also.

i remember reading about the thread but devan said by the picture, he could tell it was a direct mount up? i dunno but i would buy your elkas if you still had them lol... i know they make a conversion kit though

:swinger: = :jerkoff: = :humper: eventually ='s  :hang:                               Exentix = :puke:

even though i just said i would do the same thing, i agree. I would have to think about dumping MORE money in a 350...

I hate having to ride standing up because the suspension sucks so bad.

I ordered some sweet warning label covers from here http://www.hardlooks101.com/items/yamaha/list.htm?1=1 .

I got a large left front fender tribal blank, and a skull and cross bones but i dont remember what border, and a mounting kit  :wootwoot:   $27 shipped

Should be here sometime this week. Ill post pics  :thumbs:
