96> XR250R Shock Question

Recommended Posts

Fellow XR owners,

I am researching ways to upgrade the Kayaba shock on an 03 XR250R. I know the XR4 shock is longer, and the earlier XR250 shock also. Know the linkage rate is different. I am not willing to throw unlimited money at this, but I want to understand what is possible. Already know that I can just modify the OE, I want to see what else can be done.

My suspension guy said he can improve the OE shock, but he suggested if I can get a Showa from another model, it would be better.

So, exactly HOW is the 400 shock different than the 250? Apart from valving which is adjustable, if it is length, the shaft can be shortened or changed. Is reservoir placement same? Any length specs and pics are appreciated.
