250/450 shock compatibility

Recommended Posts

Searched around and didn't find much info.. Are all the shocks from 02-08 450 and 04-09 250 the same length and only differ in valving and spring rate?

BUMP.

old thread but i'm curious to know what shock/linkage parts interchange..

i have an 08 crf250af with only 1 shock for it. i have multiple 04 450f shocks and the clevis is much shorter than that of the 08 250f. can a complete linkage from an older 450 be installed on the 08 250f chassis to allow the shorter 450 shock(s) to be used?

i have 3 complete sets of suspension for the older 450 that i would like to be able to use on the 250f..

any info would be great,

thanks

Myself to. Have a 250 parts bike got for almost nothing. Put rear shock in 450 thought for trails may be plusher but it darted allover. Would like to no aswell

Did a bunch of research and Clevis on shock of 250r is longer then 450. So to maintain geometry u must swap clevis while changing shock. You will need to discharge pressure in shock to do clevis change and recharge after. Hope this helps

06-09 250R shock clevis is different from any other 250 or 450.
