Elka reservoir mount

Does anyone know if the elka resi's would fit in the front part of the subframe?I'm not crazy about mounting them in the rear and it looks like they would fit and be better protected if they were tucked away more. I wish they just made piggyback resis for the rear, oh well.

I haven't been able to find anyone with them and I think a salesman at elka said that it was only available in remote resis but maybe they got them somewhere else. You have a link To a old thread about this?

grin

if you really want them you have to some of that gold nuggets you got stashed buried in the ground . you can get them prolly but you will pay big for them, and i prolly wouldnt want them because the one on the exhaust sides fades a lot quicker from being closer to the rear exhaust cannister like the oem, ride your xx hard for about 30 min on whoops an jumps and then stop and feel the heat on right rear res as its very close to the exhaust cannister

He has those because he got them when he bought one of Wayne Matlock's old 700XX race quads. Those are "one off" shocks. When Wayne first got a 700XX from Honda, Elka sent him those shocks and they didn't fit. Wayne was in the campground in Parker grinding on the shocks to get them to work. I will bet money Elka will NOT sell those, because they don't fit unless you modify the shocks.

Other then the couple sets Wayne had, I have never seen an after market piggyback shock for the 700XX. I guess you could have just about any shock builder put a longer hose on them and then you could mount the resivours anywhere you want, just have to figure out how long the lines need to be.

Thanks for the pic mquick, yea I can tell that is a custom job on those shocks. I know my only option is the remotes now the question is, do I get stage 4 shocks for the rear or do I get a complete set of 4 stage 3 shocks for 100 dollars more. I would want the fronts to be long travel since I plan on getting houser arms some time in the future and the stage 2 Elkas I have aren't LT but otherwise I love my stage 2s. Idk I think I'm prob just gonna get the stage 3s since it's a bargain compared to the stage 4s.

I've always heard good things about motowoz but I don't think I could get a set of 4 for under 1500. Plus I get 10% off and free front guards since I've bought a few pairs in the past so it's something. Also that yamaha blue coloring lol
