i was thinking either just upgrading to the mx arms and shocks...or goin full bore with fox evols and sum arms...price wise i like the houser and lonestar just cuz their under a grand. houser has that mx kit with everything you need for LT for under $2500.

well, my ds, is basically a stock 09 mx. My friend who rides in NEATV pro rode my ds, becasue he broke his axle. He funs full fox/Gibson, and last year has Fox/Walsh. He said that the only diffrence he felt in the shocks, is that they were a little too bouncy, which is fixed with rebound adjustment. Also, James Stuart runs KYB shocks on his bike.

so it sounds like ill stick with the kyb. prob do the mx upgrade cuz of the valving, and just slap on sum arms. i dont do any track ridin so i can stay away from the really primo stuff like im assuming gibson and walsh is. i think lonestar or the houser then might be the best bet. thanks guys.

I've got houser std travel. super easy to adjust. seem real tough. look good. and they come in a nicely packaged kit with everythang you need. I love em. but stock shocks for now :( I'd recommed getting a A-arm gusset kit too. Another good one, just as good as houser is ATV-4-Play. John Natalie has ran them the last couple years but now has walsh. I picked the houser cause ive used houser before and i got a good deal from Golden West Cycle on them when they had houser on sale. got them for 750 out the door
