1982 xr 100 suspension

Recommended Posts

I am looking for ideas on rear shocks for my son's 82 xr 100. I am pretty sure the shocks are the same as twin shock xr80's. I would like to find something from an existing bike like the xr 80 or early cr 80. FYI, they are 13 inches or 330mm long. I'm just looking for something that has dampening for a safer ride:) Any ideas?

On a old xl175 I had I drilled and tapped a hole in the bottom of the shock. This allowed me to drain the old oil and replace it. It seemed to work ok as a low cost solution. You can't fill the shock all the way full or it will hydro lock, so leave some room for air. ATF is a decent starting point on oil.

Thanks, I may give that a shot. Aftermarket shocks would cost more than I have in the bike.
