i read this in the newest dirt wheels artical, and as you all know iam a DIY guy... sooooo I priced a gold valve kit and found one for 150 bucks.

in the artical they revalved a 450r's rear shock.... iam just wondering how much diffrent it will be then the 700xx's shock ?

also the two silver adjusters on the rear shocks, what do they adjust ?

oh and one last thing, in the artical they polished the ... i think its called the shaft... not sure.. i wonder what all could be polished to give a more smooth ride. ?

one last idea.... if i can find the thread pitch.. those sliver things on the back i might make better adjusting knobs think that would be a cool idea ?

I don't know about a rebuild kit, but I read in a review that those silver "adjusters" on the rear shocks are actually plugs, and if you loosen them you will loose the oil charge from the shocks.

This is what I have also read. The silver adjusters are a no, no unles your intent is to drain oil from the shocks!

I would think Honda will make these into compression adjusters eventually. It's been bugging since I bought my 700xx , unless the shock body is off another bike /quad.
Seems to well formed into the shock body just bto leave as a plug !
If sales were good of the 700xx maybe next year ,but in current climate I would not hold ya breathe .

The silver adjusters you are talking about on the stock shocks are plugs. Honda decided not to make these adjusters to save on costs because they felt it wasn't needed for this quad. I'm sure you could find someone to make adjusters to work where these plugs are but I think you would be spending more money and time on them and still wouldn't have anything close to an aftermarket shock.

I would check with Precision Concepts at www.precisionconceptsracing.com and see if they can revalve the stock shocks for you. This would be the best option as far as costs goes if you want to keep the stock shocks and still get a better ride.
