I think for the most part they are all very similar, the newer ones are supposed to be a lil stiffer. I had bought a set of used 08s that were raced on a mx track for a year and they were worse than stock because they needed a rebuild. Then I sold em on ebay... So what im saying is you never know what you are getting and whatever year, less hours and how they were driven the better

Anyone know how much rebuilding front shocks usually cost, and who would do such a job?

Also the Ltr 450 front shocks fits. That's what I got on my 400ex, and I love them, I also have a set of Elka stage 3, But I prefer the ltr 450 shocks over the Elka, Much better ride

You got a pic of the Suzuki front shocks? I imagine they look odd with the oil res sticking out?

Thinks for input guys. I bought those 06 450r shocks. Had to gring a little off the top off the shock and got them in in about 30 min. Had to take them to my track and try a couple laps. They work great on absorbing larger jumps, whoops, etc. I thought they ride a little rough at lower speeds but havent had any time to tune them yet. So overall I give them a thumbs up

Remember yfz450 and yfz450R are two totally different shocks. Yfz450 and Honda 450r are the ones to go with and easy to rebuild. The yfz450r's are 2" longer & a bit wider & heavier.
