is there a big difference in the shock YFZ450 shock to the elka basic shock that has a rezzy or piggyback whats different about them?

I do alot of motocross the jumps arnt that big, the biggest one i hit is a about 60-70ft. but i bottom out im just wondering if the basic elka reg. travel shock thats triple rate is good enough or should i go with a more advanced elka shock thats triple rate and has a compression adjustment

I have +2 houser reg. travel a-arms

i know theres compression, rebound, preload,high/low compression and rebound.

I kno what all the adjustments do, i just wanted to know if the basic elka shock was good enough for me or do i kno a more advanced shock

it wuold be worth it to buy the more advaced, just because if you have to upgrade, you already have an awsomely good shock.

The stock YFZ shocks are pretty darn good but since you have put wider arms that has probaly softened them up. But are you bottoming in the rear or the front? There is different versions of the YFZ shocks also. Do you have high and low speed compression adjustability or a single compression adjustment? Where is your compression adjustment set at now?

what year is your YFZ? I run stock 08 shocks on my o5, the 07 BB edition has the better shocks to. The stock shocks can be revalved and resprung(by the right ppl) to compensate for your a-arms and will handle just as good as the elkas, they can even be extended for longer travel.. and that runs around $800 all the way around. but as for elkas, if in doubt and you can afford it, go with the better ones, the what ifs dont hurt as bad..:laugh:
