Not a direct bolt on, you have to mill the top eyelets of shocks to fit. There are a few thread's on this I'm sure. The bottom fit's perfect. And they are a big improvement over stock.

yea, I read that you had to work on the ds 650 shocks, but didn`t know about the 450 shocks. gonna try to ride it a little this week to see if I want to keep it, and or spend any $ on it. I`m about tapped out right now!--thanks for the info-bob

Just I haven't read much if any on modifying the ds-650 shocks for our quad, but a lot on the ds-450's.

if anyone has a picture to show the top of the DS450 Front shock installed on the 700TRX that would be great !
I had a DS450 XMX and I remember that the top was to large, just curious how did you do ?
thanks in advance
