2003 CR 250 rear shock clevis

Recommended Posts

Looking for some info on a 2003 Honda CR 250 shock. My shock rod started to unscrew from the clevis and ended up pulling out and pulling about 3-4 threads with it. Is the clevis supposed to be able to unscrew? I imagine it is but in all the rebuild videos I watch no one takes the spring off by removing the clevis. 

Also the clevis is not for sale as a individual part, I was thinking of buying a cheap shock on eBay and just using the clevis since the rest of my shock is still in great shape.

Anyone have this issue before and can shed some light on what my best option would be?

Yes they do unscrew , they don't come as a spare part and the assembly will cost most of the bikes value , best get one from eBay etc , make sure the shaft isn't rusty or pitted , they do vary in lengths for different years and models ,they are used for many years so newer ones may fit

You can buy just the rod and clevis - but probably cheaper buying a used shock and using just the clevis off it - or try and get yours repaired - you could run a tap inside it to get it to the next sized thread - then helicoiling your clevis

used shocks dont seem to be that expensive

theres a clevis here off a 95 cr250 - it may be the same  :excuseme:

Use the 02-04 CR250r models as they were specific to those model years on the size of the clevis if I recall.

If i remember correctly there was still 10-12 solid threads on the clevus and the rod is still in great shape, nothing wrong with the threads.

i imagine the vibrating of the engine caused the shock rod to vibrate and then at 3-4 threads it just couldn't hold anymore. 

Tempted to buy some locktite and put it back together with that, anything over 10 threads should be pretty solid. Or maybe I'll just be patient and wait for the right part or decently priced shock assembly pop up.
