Shock options??

Recommended Posts

Asking this for a friend.....

What are the shock options to compliment YZ85 forks on a TTR125L?

We know of the WP shock and we read somewhere the newer 125 shock with remote resi, are there any others?

Cheers, #319

There's the YZ80 rear shock, but that isn't a bolt on Modification, you have to do some fabrication to get it on. The Works shock is pretty much the only way to go.

How does your buddy like the YZ front end so far??

OK thanks,

The front end looks good, only installed for mock-up so far. Definitely need something on the rear to level it out, the front end sits quite higher now and he's got the forks up in the triples as far as they will go.

He had to get new seals(one was gone), fork guards(didn't come with any) and some heavier fork oil from Yamaha, that all came in today and he's working on the forks as I type this.

We are going riding tomorrow, curious to see how the TTR handles with the new YZ front end and the stock shock.

How much modification needs to be done to make the YZ80/85 shock work?

As far as the YZ80 rear shock, there is a guy on here with the user name HART and he has done the YZ rear shock conversion. Try searching this topic, you'll find his post about the shock. He had to cut a notch on the top shock mount because of the YZ resevoir. I'm not sure what else he had to do. Again, try searching this topic, you will find it! Good luck! :thumbsup:
