I contemplated this same thing about a year ago. I ended up going with the Elka front mainly because I wanted to drop the XX down a bit, I also liked the looks of them better. Elka set them up nice and I have been really happy with them.

That being said, if you like being able to adjust and ride hard enough to need the reservoirs the DS450 shocks may be a better fit.

I haven't really heard anything bad about either. It just came down to being able to drop the front end a bit for me.

I think they are a higher quality than the ds and they dont jack your ride way up in the air. You can get the yfz shocks very close to the same length of the stock shocks depending on what year bike you get the shocks from

Just put the DS shocks on and only got 3/8" lift out of them. Not too bad. First impression is nice. They really tighen up the feel of the bike. Can't wait to test them for real this weekend and get them dialed in.
