I want to change the rear shocks of my Chinese 150cc, R16 wheels scooter. I guess riding it with a better pair of shocks will be more enjoyable. I have not been able to find much comments about rear shocks on the forum. The web page of YSS shocks (.yssusa.com) has a good amount of information, but I am still lost about what parameters to consider in order to choose an adequate pair of shock substitutes. I would appreciate any comments you much more experienced guys could share about this topic. Thank you in advance!!!
i personally wouldn't run any stock replacement shocks,,i would measure the shock(s) eye to eye and run a koni/girling/works,,,or any of the other decent brands out there,,,,and there are many,,,you have to consider that you are trying to damp the whole engine and drivetrain not just the rear wheel and swingarm as a motorcycle ,,,the girlings on my stella do a real good job,,,not to bad of a price either i was surprised,,,also you have to see if the spring can be removed,,,that way you can keep the spring rate the same and only have to pay for the shock,,,keeping the price down a bit
Hi guys, Cyborg thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience. After looking on the web for your recommendations, I found that KONI is now being produced under the IKON brand and that HAGON bought GIRLING tooling and is producing modern versions of their shocks. Now moving attention to the other end of the scooter, what do you guys would say about improving front fork suspension? Best regards,
