2013 rmz450 shock body

Recommended Posts

I need to replace a damaged 2012 shock body. Threads are no good. It's not mine so I'm not sure what happened. I was told the the following are similar

2008-2009

2010-2012

2013-2014

I'm not worried about the internals but I need to know what shock bodies will fit and what the differences are. The internals I have are good and planned on just putting them into the new shock. I have heard the bodies are all the same during this time but I know the frames changed.

Thanks for the help.

Just cut the rings off , then get a spacer of nylon made to space the spring onto decent threads

I haven't seen it yet so I can't guess how bad it is. The problem I might have with that though, if the threads are too bad, I won't be able to spin the rings above where the threads are no good. If I was going top down it might be different. I could probably grind the threads down though enough to get it past.

Just clean it up with a thread file , they have all thread sizes and are very cheap
