KTM PDS shock compatable between years

Recommended Posts

Regarding KTM models in the year range of 03 to 09. I believe the major frame change came between 07 and 08. So short question is will the PDS shock switch from say an 08 to an 03 frame? Did geometry of the pivot points change thus requiring a spring or valving change when moving from one chassis to the other?

In other words if the spring rate and valving was correct for an 08 250 and that shock was moved from the 08 to an 03 would it still be correct?

No, the new 07 sx 08 xc chassis uses different leverage, length and valving, as well as spring rates. Yes it can be made to fit with alterations. I put an 08 shock, which isn't an easy fit on the lower clevis, as its slighly narrower, but does work with the correct valving setup and spring rate for the older chassis.
