Suspension Question? Shocks for 250X

Suspension Question? Shocks for 250X
I bought the wife a 2019 honda 250X,it does not have adjustable shocks,I'm thinking of maybe getting one  as well,for her she does not notice it as much as I  do but the ride is not as good as my 1991 250X with adjustable shocks.

So I'm looking at maybe getting new shocks if I get one for myself,I find these.

So too stiff or too soft on the stock suspension? I don't think you can go wrong with Elkas but you'll drop $1k to do that. This article is worth a check on the 250x, they used the elka suspension as well. https://www.atv.com/manufacturer/honda/honda-trx250x-project-shocks-exhaust-protection-and-more

Honda 250x shocks elka suspensions

The kit Elka built for our TRX250X features remote reservoirs front and rear for added cooling. Elka’s legacy series shocks feature spring preload, low-speed compression damping, and rebound damping on the rear shock. The ideal amount of adjustment for most recreational riding and even some beginner level racing. They’re built for your weight, type of riding, chassis setup, tires, and more.

With our TRX250X now sitting around 44.5” wide, it is much more stable, allowing us to carry more speed into and out of turns; plus the quad stays more planted on side-hills.  The wider rear end spreads the machine’s weight out, allowing for more predictable and easier to execute power slides and boosting the ATV’s fun factor. Our only complaint is a small but manageable increase in steering effort, leaving us happy we’d stuck with the +1.5” wheel spacers.

I just installed Elka shocks on my 86 250R and it made a huge difference. my old stock shocks were done, but I'm gonna try to sell them. The Elka legacy 3 front and back cost $1000.

      It's time to replace the shocks and struts.  Looking for some stiffer springs than the OEM as I use this for farm work and I put heavy loads on the rear and haul small trailers frequently.  I've seen a couple aftermarket offerings that say they're 10% or so heavier duty.  Any other options for something a little stronger / stiffer?  Thanks.

      Just bought this, I'll tell you it's almost mint. Couple issues, 1. He said he put new front shocks on but getting clunks when I hit a decent bump. 2. It's liquid cooled is regular 50/50 Prestone good?  Thanks in advance

      Just wondering if anyone here knows where I could possibly find a replacement/substitute rear shock for a 1989 Yamaha Moto 4 250?
      any help would be appreciated.

      Can somebody please tell me if 250x or 250ex nerf bars will fit on 96 300ex, and will 93-98 300ex nerf bars work on my 96 300ex? Thanks

      Well got another one for the elders here. I recently picked up a Honda Trx 250
      in pretty rough shape. Brought it home cleaned it up if thats possible. Motor was
      seized, Pretty bad shape. I unseized the motor, got it to spin over, Got it to crank on its
      own with the start button. Got neutral light, but no spark. Fuses good wiring is old but looks
      intact. Went to check cdi box, here is where the problem lies, I dont know the year. The last one 
      was under the plastic on the crossmember, this one has none. Looks like a  sticker was there at one time. 
      I checked the left side of frame by foot peg and nothing. Cant find any vin number. I need to know the year
      to try to locate a cdi. One clue is this one appears to have 2 cdi boxes. One is a little larger than the other but
      plugs look identical to eachother. One has green connectors and the other has white connectors. Is this only
      on certain year model that has duel cdi boxes? I also need a download for a trx 250 Im thinking its about a 1985 or 86
      but just a guess. Before changing i would like to check some voltages but need a manual for this. Any guess on how to 
      identify and or get a download for this one would be great. Wont let me post pics only .08 MB Down load available. Thanks in advance Az

      Hi all, new to this forum so thanks in advance for the help.

      I have recently brought a 2013 power steering fuel injected foreman 500.

      It has a crack in the front casing and was running rough. I have since replaced the front engine casing and this has made no difference to the engine performance.

      It starts and idles but bogs down and starts to die once throttle is applied.

      It maybe be but it also sounds very load.

      I have uploaded a video link of it.

      Both the red wire and the blue have power with out the start button being pushed.  Which one should have power?  When I hooked up a positive and a negative to the starter relay it started.

      Hi all, I was gifted this Bayou but she's been sitting quite some time. It won't crank using the factory start button but when I jumper the starter solenoid it cranks but there is no spark. The key has power coming in on the white wire and when turned on supplies power to the brown wire coming out.

      I guess I should start with testing the pickup? I heard I may be able to jumper the wires coming from the pickup with an LED bulb and it will flash? I noticed in the manual that it should have around 110 ohms resistance so I'll check that as well. One thing I noticed was that the starter circuit relay has power on one of the black wires with the key on- this doesn't seem normal as I'm assuming the black wires are grounds? I think one of them comes from the start switch, travels through the starter circuit relay and then grounds the starter relay?
      Mine is a 1991 so it has the 7 wire CDI (ignitor) and a 2 yellow wire alternator ( as opposed to the later 3 wire type ) with another 2 wires for the source coils (black & red wires ). The pickup wires are blue and black I do believe. Any help appreciated and yes I will test the pickup ASAP.

      I'm trying to understand how the system works and I don't understand what the yellow / red wire from the kill switch does- I assume it gets grounded when the kill switch is "on" and therefore grounds the CDI so it can't activate the ignition coil? I noticed in the diagram that that yellow / red wire looks like it may be grounded by the ignition key switch when in the "off" position?
      I also don't have 12v power at any of the wires going into the CDI- doesn't the CDI need to be powered? I also read on this forum that someone used a GM HEI module in place of the factory CDI just to test it for spark- does anyone have any info on that?

      I hope I'm not missing something simple!
      Here is a link to the diagram for my bike (which was posted by another user): https://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/topic/13742-1988-bayou-220-lost-spark/?tab=comments#comment-101193

      Any help appreciated!
