Suspension

Ok! Was bored today since it's raining so I decided to do some research found this site http://www.marvinshawshocks.com/custom.htm

which can make some shocks to our bike's specification so I sent them an email asking if they could or not. Perhaps if we get more of us asking them about it then they might just make some. They make some for other atv

Check it out.

Got an email back stating they would make us some shocks, just need the length of the shocks and it will cost us $440 plus shipping.

What are the dimension of our front shocks, they have the coil spring and competition style and I think they can have springs colored.

I'm going to call them up

Did you specify that they were for trail riding? I know Marvin Shaw shocks are very good for hill climb or sand drags but dont know if they are any good for other types.

Have ask him about it and haven't got a reply as of yet! Ask him if we could adjust them for different riding area i.e. trail, mud, rocky and Dunes and "weight" since we are all in different shape/size. Also ask him about if we would have a choice of colors for the spring.

Got a reply back from Tim and he stated the coil spring is adjustable for the style of riding we do and our weight, at this moment they only offer chrome option and once they are out of those then it will only be available in black. Now I just need the specifications of our shocks, still wondering if I should had an extra inch of travel to them.

Does anybody know the shocks specifications?
