    2006 Thumpstar 125 rear shock upgrade

    lol I bought an 800lb spring and shock on ebay but if its too stiff i'll just swap the springs we'll see how it works out. Eventually I would like to hit a few jumps on it etc.

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing too. There's a good one on tbolt USA that is a 550lb spring that I might go for but its 130 bucks I was hoping to spend like 75 or under lol

    2006 Thumpstar 125 rear shock upgrade

    I just picked up a 2006 Thumpstar 125 and I want to upgrade the rear shock to accomodate my weight. I'm 6'1" and just about 300lbs. My bike has the A style or triangle style swing arm. There's some decent looking 1200lb rear shocks on ebay or there's the Fast Ace 550lb rear shock on Tbolt which says is for A style swing arms. My question is, would the 1200lb rear shock be the way to go for a guy like me even on the A style setup? Also would a 280mm shock work? And does the shock have to be A style specific or not?
