    YSS Shock Absorbers

    Ive been thinking of upgrading my current OEM shocks which work fine just a little cosmetically challenged. Anyone had any experience with the above and are they worth the money? Regards nick zephyr

    Had YSS on my rex for2 years now - not too many miles - but very happy with the ride quality and finish of them. Easy to set up too. ( I just set everything on middle settings then did the same 20 mile stretch of road a few times and altered one setting at a time. Still looking good and performing well.

    Their lower end range of YSS shocks are the best on the market IMHO.

    If yours work fine I'd service them, get the springs powdercoated and the colors re plated.
    Probably cost less than new lower end shocks and suit the look of the bike better.

    Piggy back ones are excellent ! i ran the non adjustable Íhlins before, compared to the YSS these were crappy.
    I guess this is due to the adjustability. Manufacturing quality seems on par to me also. Looks wise, i prefer them too, but my Rex is black..; )
    cheers, D

    I ran the entry level 169 quid models for a while. I never saw any issues with 'em at all. For a budget shock, they are pretty decent quality
