i was talkin to ed from teixera racing a sponsor

and he said i cant use fox because they dont make shocks unless they have the shocks designed for the arms which they will in time but i got no time

ive heard they dont make custom shocks and i need a 19 1/2

so does this mean i cant get them through alba or any other companies??

i guess ill have to go spring??


they said they have to set them up for the r??

s long as the shock is the right size i thought it was ok

thanks-greg

No, Fox wont just make a special length for anyone. So you won't be able to get that length of fox from any dealer. But if you know a shock person you like they might be able to cut one shorter. Fox will be making shocks for Ed's a-arms in a few weeks. I know, because they are building them for me.
If I was you, I would wait for Fox to finish. You could just put any shock the right length on it yes. But The shock companies usually like to do some testing to make sure their initial valving is correct because that might need to be different for each quad.

How sure are you about that? I know Norris Quinn has one of Tim Farr's last Laeger Pro Traxx hybrids, and Fox made him a set of Evols for the front of it.

By anyone, I met "just anyone". Fox will do some special stuff for their riders which is why Fox will have the shock eventually because they will be building something for me.

Talk to Daddio on here. He is running fox shocks on his sons R. And I'm pretty sure they are off of his normal yfz. They are the fox evol shocks.

i talked to fox about a week ago trying to get some shocks made for my new houser a-arms but they couldnt do it for me because they do not have a yfzr there to put the arms on and test them. they do have a shock off the shelf that would match up to the houser specs with some special mods but they wouldnt sell it to me with out it being tested by there R&D department...im sure if your a well known rider for them they would hook you up but this is my first season being sponsored by them so im a nobody lol
unfortuantly i might have to go with a different brand because i dont want to wait till the middle of the season to use my brand new a-arms.. they told me they dont know when they would be getting in a new yfzr.
