XR 400 rear shock options?

Recommended Posts

I keep blowing out the bladder in my rear shock right around every 10 months or so. I do ride a lot, but am tired of having to throw money at the factory shock for servicing. I know Ohlins used to make a shock for the XR400. Any ideas?

Bought mine at propilotracing.com a couple years ago. Works great! Just don't swap bikes with your friend who wears Sidi boots as the inner plastic guard will rub the Ohlins gold right off of the shock reservoir. Grrrr!

I've had my XR 10 years and have never had a problem with the shock bladder. I would think the shock is either undersprung for your weight or the type riding you're doing with it.

Who is servicing your shock?
