trx450 shocks

I have been thinking about the amount of guys who want (need) better shocks on their TRX700XX.There are many better shocks to put on but most need some grinding,cutting or bending of parts,most people don't want to do this and then have to spend BIG bucks for after market shocks.Thats great if you are near the front of the pack but for trail riding etc its a bit too much.
One shock that does bolt on (NO grinding etc) is the TRX450 front shock.
They are in plentiful ,cheap supply but are too short for theTRX700xx and lowers them too much for trail riding.
So, if I made a bolt on spacer/kit to mount them correctly, how many people would be interested in the kit?
I know there is shipping involved, but I thinkI can work this out.
Please give me an idea of numbers and I will pursue this to help out our forum members to have the best quad they can.

TRX450 shocks aren't really that cheap. The price I have seen is in the $400 a set range. Have been looking for my RZR.

I told him not to worry ,send when you're ready ,no rush. I can't imagine what he was going through at that time.

Sorry for getting off topic. The stock front450r shocks are 16.5" eye to eye. 1" shorter than the stock XX fronts.

Being 260 lbs should I be concerned about bottoming these shocks? I have maxed out the stockers on big landings

The stockers dont have compression adjustments. These do, should be much better.

Quads that I know of are made for 160lbs or so suggested rider weight. I'm assuming the shocks on them are set up the same way. The adjustable ones will help to a point but if you are landing hard on stockers most of them will do the same thing. Having shocks built to your specs are going to be better than anything else but more costly
