As far as I know, you can't use shocks with piggy backs on the rear because there isn't room.

As far as I know you are the 5th member to think of this.

#1- Tried stock length 450r fronts. too short.

#2- Me- Talked to Fox and basically a no go. Getting them to fit basically needs the rear end redo and they basically don't fit. I have measured.

#3- Contacted by #3 by PM. Told him my findings and he didn't try.

#4- Also by PM.This is the member I think most are talking about. He's a British member and had serious handling problems. On paper it should of had one of the best handling 700xx's of the forum. It took me about 10 days to sort it out. Then the Fox Shox question. From what I replied , I think I kinda upset him with my reply. There's more to the story but he's not been back on the forum since.

#5-TatTooLK23. Fox Shox say you should not try this.I can list the reason's why but feel you'll have an answer. So I will add I have not found a piggyback shock that will fit the rear of a 700xx (yet).


I am for the try something differant and enjoy , "you can't do that" then post a picture and I have many pictures. Out of respect "Please"don't try this.It's not a good idea.

As for the craziest idea for a 700xx, that would be mine. MCF British MX Championship on a 700xx.

I agree. I love the "it can't be done"

I'm currently working with a machinist on have adapters made to convert the rear arms to eyelet style.

It may or may not work but cool to try it.

I'll let u know.

I believe Houser do a rear a arm set for the 700xx with a eyelet style lower mount,
I have to ask, why are you set on running float rears when the podium x is a straight fit and a awesome shock?

I just want the air shocks all the way around.

Not really a big deal. I'll run coil shocks if I have to but as dumb as it sounds I don't want the mis-matched look of no coil up front then coils in the rear.
