One of my bud's just put the Dual Rate WORKS shocks on his Rinny this past weekend. I could tell a big difference aspecialy at high speeds running though the rough stuff. I just think it's a little expensive. But it suit's his riding style.

Did I read that right? $2100 bucks for suspension? I am in the wrong business! My god these people in the quad business are freaking crazier then Harley Davidson! I feel a rant coming on here so I better stop...

fomocofan-I went throught the shock thing with my EX. The only advise I can give is spend the dough the first time. I had tripple rate zero pre-load adjustable rhino racing front with rezzys and factory rear revalved and dual rate zero pre-load, and I thought they were good. Then I got my hands on a full set of TCS and they are the real deal. If you are going to spend the money, do it right the first time.
$1000 vs $2000=OK vs the best.
