I'm looking to acquire an iShock w/reservoir. I'm not sure what advantages the LE provides, but if it's that much better I'd probably go for it.



Where's the best place (i.e. least expensive, in stock) to get one :?:



Thanks for you help :p

The LE has a compresion adjustment, and dont listen to anyone if they tell you it doesnt adjust much, I accidentally turned mine the wrong way and it made it so stiff I could even get it to budge. It makes the shock super adjustable especially if you have a swingarm which would make the shock even more compliant and plush feeling. If you want the best deal on a LE ishock give xr50racer a PM, he sells them for $300, its where I got mine.

Thanks for all the advice guys... I'll probably go with the reservoir, but not the LE. Can't justify the extra cash right now.



I did see that Kitaco has a rear available now from Classic Honda. Anyone know anything about it?



Thanks,

Rick

Where are you getting your ishock w/ res from. Because depending on where your gettin it from it could only cost you $50 more. Only reason I got the LE was because I found xr50racer selling them for $300. I sure wasnt going to pay what everyone else wants for em.

Anyone tried the Risse air shock yet?



I have one on my road racer, and it feels great but havent tried it for moto yet. I will bring one to Fridays M4SRA race in El Cajon if anyone wants to give it a go. It is stock length, but I can adjust it to your wieght. I would like to get some feedback until my dirt-fiddy is completed and I can try it myself.



It is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the stock shock, but then again... a piece of wood jammed up in there may be too.



PM me if interested.
