Complete LEVEL 2 CRF shock kit includes:
Please note that while our LEVEL 2 250mm travel CRF shock offers the same overall travel as the OEM specification, now you have the rear of the bike sprung with correct rate for your weight (ie.without the excessively soft sag of the OEM components) correspondingly you will have effectively raised your ride/seat height by around 30-40mm (depending on your personal sag preference) - in other words, you now have more of the total travel available than before, and a corresponding increase in seat height and ground clearance.
In that regard, while it is perfectly possible to fit our 250mm travel LEVEL 2 rear shock independently of any other upgrades, we would recommend you consider matching it with our dedicated LEVEL 2 fork kit for a properly matched ride-height and geometry - offering a high performance suspension set-up front and rear.
We also suggest fitting our own longer side stand (RRP 749) when upgrading to the Level 2 suspension, as the taller seat height of the bike will cause it to lean over excessively when on the OEM side stand.
