Shocks interchangable between years?

3 posts in this topic

I have a 2001 280 edition, which i believe uses the same front and rear suspension as the early pro models. My shock has seen better days and during a bit of searching for the part no. bt280014004 ive seen some suggestion on parts sites that it was "superseded" by the later pro shock part no. bt300003013

does anyone have first hand experience of swapping shocks between years? seems like a good condition 2010 or so shock might be a nice upgrade over my old shagged one. I know splat shop offer rebuilds on them but the price is a bit hard to justify given the bikes age/low value

They will swap, but take different spacers. I had years of spacers laying around when I did rhe reverse of what you are doing. I used a 2001 shock while rebuilding an Ohlins.
