XR70R Suspension Help

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a decent rear shock for a 2002 XR70R? I need cheap, like eBay. Anything is better then what it is now. Preferably really stiff as I weigh 200. Not jumping big just need better to have some fun.

Have you thought about a stiffer spring on the stock shock?  That is what I did on our 2003 XR70 and it made a huge difference.  I used a BBR HD spring in the rear and their HD springs in the fork.  You used to be able to buy a rear shock extender for the stock Honda shock on eBay and that raised the rear end of our bike about an inch.  I'm sure that a better shock like the Works Performance shock would make a big difference as well but unless you're racing it I doubt it would be worth the investment.

 

Good Luck!
