Wassup guys just traded my alky Cheetah Cub banshee for a raptor 700r and z400.Both are good trail bikes but I wanna make the suspension a little bit better on the rappy.Its an 07 blue(The fastest color lol).Tried the search under YFZ shocks and no help.

depending on the year of the yfz shocks, i had ones off of an 04 yfz on my 700 and the over all length was about 1/8 to 1/4 shorter but the ride height remained the same.....i also installed some 06yfz shocks on a friends 700 and the spring rate was completly different, they sat as least an inch lower then stock but were adjustable up to the correct height....

you guys think Ill be better of getting some cheap aftermarket shocks?This is only a trail bike and the bike rides like a cadillac compared to a stock banshee

Congrats on the new ride, you're gonna love the Raptor. YFZ450 shocks or the Raptor SE shocks will be a big improvement over stock shocks. If you go with YFZ450 shocks they will lower your ride heigth alittle but you can adjust that real easy. Take a look at the "How To" Section for a complete write up on how to adjust your suspension. Also check out the JD Performance group buy on a-arms which will be the biggest improvement you can make on the Raptor suspension.
