450r shocks on 400ex?

Recommended Posts

Some people find the 450R shocks to be a bit stiff and tall for the 400ex or 250R. But for a heavier rider this can be a good thing. I think they would work quite well with extended a-arms since the 450R is a bit wider than a 400ex. Overall, I believe they would be a good step up from stock, and much cheaper than aftermarket. I use a set of KFX 450R shocks on my 250R with +2 a-arms, and I think they work great.

I did not have to shave the 450 shocks when I mounted them,I just took a screw driver and hammer and knocked off the nut welded to the frame that holds the front plastics above the shock.Then used a smaller carriage bolt upside down and bolted everything right up. The shocks made a big difference.
