DS450 shock swap
 
I've searched all over and haven't found any confirmation of this swap being done. It was talked about but never picked back up. I've got a line on a set of shocks and would like to know if it is in fact possible. I'm sure a couple other xx riders out there would be pleased to know as well!!

You have any links to where they were talking about this?

I actually PM'd him and he messaged me back last night. He got the install done with modification to the upper shock mount. He had to make the mount half as thick and notch part of it for the shock it sit properly and then with a little finessing, it worked. He said he was going to get some pics up of the finished result.

As per Sonic007:
Ya, they are modified and mounted...quite a bit of modifying the top mount....you have to make the top mount about half as thick, then on the inside edge of the mount you have to notch it in to clear the factory mount position...a little massaging of the mount on the bike and they fit great...i havent ridden it yet, still snow on the ground here....my only concern would be the integrity of the new thinner top mount....but for the price, you cant beat the set-up...I'll post a finish pic soon.

After checking it out in the thread below this seams like a great find. We could send our stock rear shocks and these fronts to our new sponsor and have all four upgraded for allot less than one set of Elka's

Tell him pics or it never happened.

I was the one who told him about the super cheap auction on eBay for them.
