Ltr450 Front Shocks

I'm new here but I just bought a lightly used set of front shocks for. I understand they fit much easier than the DS450 shocks, but I was just wondering if any grinding is still necessary and if anyone had any pictures of them installed on their xx.
Thanks

Nevermind... searched for days and 10 minutes after i make an account and thread i find pictures.

Thanks guys,
Heres the link (its from the DS450 shock swap thread but on page 18)
https://www.club700xx.com/vb/showthre...ltr450&page=18

Apparently the upper mounts on the quad need to expanded 3mm, you need washers for the bottom, and (as the pictures show) the compression reservoirs need to face forward. Doesn't seem like too much work compared to the ds450 swap.
I will post my results after I install them, probably not until the first weekend in October though.

That link doesn't work. Ok, I found it. https://www.club700xx.com/vb/showthre...t=2945&page=18

Don't think I will go that route. I don't want to modify the frame mount. I would be willing to grind on a shock though. Widening that mount is permanent.

I not crazy about messing with the quad itself either, but i want to see if replacing the needle bushing on the LTR shock with a rubber one like on the stock 700xx is possible, if so, the shock can be ground and not the brackets.
Someone talks about this on that link.

I don't personally like the ltr450 shocks with the reservoirs facing the front! I think Baxter or someone said the 450r shocks are a direct fit!

Are they all the same? I mean how is the ride on each one? I kinda dig the front faceing resi, id paint it black though. I can't drop 1k for Elka's but I'd like a bit better ride. No hijack intended lol
