I have had a bad set of shocks on one of the TY250's (leaking). Had a set of 14" shocks with great dampening but fairly heavy springs (don't know weight rating). I put these on this morning and then went out and rode several sections.

When you went over an 18" log the front wheel cleared great....then the back wheel hit.... it was like dragging a brick over the log. It really showed me how much difference the spring rate of a shock effects the ride quality.

We are so used to making minor changes that something like this really proves a point.

Just thought I would share.
