    Cool thread!!. I got back into mtb in 05, on a aniki. I rode it for about a year. I don't think there is a better freeride bike for the money. I just sold it and bought a yakuza bakuto. what an awesome bike.

    but in the uk iv been trying to buy a new rear shock but a can never get the size right because its all in mm over here.so i was wundering iv any one had the measurments for the rear shock in mm eye to eye and shaft travel.

    Manitou calls the shock 230 X 70. Marzocchi labels it 228,6 x 70.

    Maybe a heavier spring kit? Do they have any internal adjusters?

    Ooooh, and my 888 gets here tomorrow. so happy! Might get the travel reducer kit, since I dont NEED 8 inches, and the rear shock i'm getting is only 8.75 so the geo would be hella wierd...

    Well, I'm rockin the rebuilt 04 888RR 200mm now... SO NICE! Like freeridersuk's Jr T, mine is soft as hell. I am thinking its the oil? Or maybe I just need to play with the adjustments. I am NOT going to get a shorter shock though, the ge is as shallow as I want it. I am going to get a travel reducer kit soon though. I'll post pics as soon as I can.

    can you here the oil sloshing around when u shake the fork?
    i can but i think its the open bath lubrication.
    im getting the spring kit because oil damping wont actually make that much
    diferance to the stifness so extra firm springs it is. for now im thinking about puting the spiners back on tho cos im kinda of limeted to what i can do with it at the min jumps and drops wise

    ... you've got a Jr T and your gonna put that crapshoot spinner back on??? Damn... Yeah, I'm considering getting the heavy spring, altho the damping realy ramps up in the last few inches. Errrr, I think its damping I dunno (feels stupid).

    That is some sick bike mate....

    2 weeks, bro… that long to finally test ride my bike since my upgrade to a swinger 4 way rear 450 lbs and 07 boxxer ride fork. Well worth the wait. I did not notice any difference on my bike characteristic even I have 8 inch travel in front. still sweet on corners just ripped it down hill. Good news did not bottom out on me. Still plenty of travel left to go big… I would say I have been using at lese 5-6 ½ inch travel only.

    I hope there is a way to reduce this boxer ride to 7 instead of 8 but I would not worry on them right now. Good day to all and ride safe….

    I will post some pics soon

    4 way shock is absolutely great, keep me on the ground on any speed on fast turns. Jumps are very predictable you know it will give you a sweet landing on any condition will not bottom out with proper spring rate and pressure. Smooth rebound and will take a beating. I give these 2 thumbs up.

    Boxxer Ride for an 8 inch fork, Awesome like I said did not use all 8 inch travel still plenty for a big one. Rebound and compression adjustment work like it should..

    Sorry guys I have not taken any action shot but I will. Planning to get a hydraulic bake later coz Im still paying all the $$$$ I just spent… right now Im okay with stock brake lol good day to all

    Question to all I’m having some weird rocking play on frames pivot, is this normal? I have my friend hold my bike’s Handel bar and me trying to twist my rear tires side to side and yehh I have a small play on it. Is that a sight of worn out pivot bearings.

    If problem still continue to develop and get bigger it will hit my seat post soon. Any one notice?

    Thanks guys, I love this Aniki yehhh…
    $ 378.00 for my rear shock 4 way
    $ 655.00 for my 07 Boxxer Race 8 Inch. but I got some hook up and paid $ 300.00 for it new..
    $ 70 for FUNN RSX Direct Stem for BoXXer forks
    $ 27 for rear spring 2.75 x 450 lbs
    $ 45 Simtra McPudgy Handlebar


    I went today to got my bike check regarding my pivot problem.
    Found out that my bearing is shot and will not moving at all causing the pivot shaft to rub on my frame directly and made them bigger and that's the problem.

    Now I have a bad frame and causing them to have some play. I hope they will cover it as a warranty Issue. I got this bike last December 13 2006. So check your frame befor its to late like mine..

    if the sag is right but you're bottoming out, add a few ml of oil to each leg. should stiffen it up at the end of the stroke. too much sag, get new springs.

    a bit off topic here, but I just picked up a kumicho to replace my 11 year old GT LTS.. how does one go about mounting a front derailleur onto it? I'm used to old school bikes that have a seat tube for mounting a FD.. thanks

    So just when I though the Spinner was retired and going to spend some years in the parts bin collecting dust, I found a new use for it:


    I know this fork is pretty much junk but its free and still works like the day it did when I bought the bike so Im gonna ride it untill it breaks on me.

    Sohon Bucho

    I just bought a Yakuza Sohon Bucho and I was wondering where all the other Yakuza riders where. I figured there are quite a few just by the number of reviews posted up in the products section.
    The question I have is are there any Sohon Bucho Riders out there. I'm not trying to steal your thread I just would like to know that I am not the only one. By the way the Aniki's posted up earlier looked sweet and I like the action shots too. Yakuzafreerider are you using a timer or is there somebody else doing the camera work?

    Awesome thread, nice bikes guys! Hell, this should just be the Yakuza thread I see the whole family almost. Here's my ride it's an '06 Ojiki I haven't seen anyone have one of these actually, but I love it. No mods yet, but I want to change out the grips and rear spring soon. Let me know what you think!

    hey guys
    just got ma new rear shock its a 5th element.i picked it up 2nd hand of a friend for £30 or $60.it was working great and didnt bottom out a single time until i decided to play ariound with the rebound and unscrewed it a little to much.well you can probably guess that all the oil drained out before i could screw it back up so im back to using the stock x-fusion shock for now.the place in europe that will fix it and tune it for me are tf tuning put the prices are bad.check this link for it .... http://www.tftunedshox.com/progressive/progcharges.htm

    Wicked I took my bike out for it's first blast of the year and had some bad luck. Lost all tension in my rear derailleur won't switch gears at all.. Got some play I noticed around the rear spring, this one scares me when I lift the bike by the seat there's a lot of wobble in the back end, and my right crank came completely loose, damnit! Damn bike. Oh well, have some fun on the bike stand this weekend, I guess.

    So how much abuse can this bike take? I found this thread cause I was looking into the quality. I am 6'2 205 plan on riding some dirt and down hill can this bike take the abuse? Any tips from years past models?

    wow, for the price, i'm really thinking about getting one of these. i was going to upgrade my super v to uber v (i.e. 6 inch travel super v) but i may keep it for xc and get one of these instead. how do they climb? i don't have the time right now to read the whole thread, gotta get some sleep for work tomorrow. this or the sachem 4.0 both look tempting for the price.

    If you climb lots a sachem would be best but even if you climb a little a aniki would good be cause they have two speeds in the front for climbing and descending. but an aniki is 4 more pounds.

    Okay, im getting the '06 yakuza aniki in a couple of weeks and i am wondering what spring should i get (from iron horse since they send it to you free). I weigh 132 and still growing so what do you think would be good? I saw everyone said that the 350lb is way to soft so i was wondering what would be good.

    -Thank you

    The stock 350 lb. spring was fairly soft for my style, me weighing around 155 lbs.
    I only switched to the 650 lb. spring after I was bottoming out.... a lot!
    I was more worried about the damage to the shock and other various things from the hash slamming.
    The 650 lb. spring is a big jump, obviously, and I would recommend it for anyone planning on doing larger stuff.

    Has anyone broke there derailer hanger? Because my friend has broke his 3 times on his aniki. Lucky americans us Canadians have to buy our IH bikes from a crappy big box store called sport check they dont know how to install a bloody bike part. The guys there that sell the IH bikes are so dumb they think IH is a canadian company and know no more about bikes than a monkey. My friend has broke his derailer hanger 3 times because they are to stupid to know that you need to actually tighten the derailer to the hanger.

    yup





    That happened twice to me. I finally just got a way better derailleur (sram X9) with a short cage to rule out some of the possibilities, then had my LBS tune it all up. It made a huge difference, smoother, faster shifts. No further problems at all!

    I hope that does not happen to me because sport check never orders the part right away and It takes them a month to get the part.

    I'm about 5' 11" and the 17" feels great, I do like smaller frames though.

    You should be fine.

    IH just requires you to provide proof of purchase, or at leased thats all I had to provide.
    They just sent it to me after that...fast too.

    The fracture is, as I said, very small, and thus very hard to see on the X-ray. I think I can kinda sorta make it out, same thing the doctor was. Regardless, the arrow points to the general area where he said the problem is:

    I wouldnt have sold everything for any injury, so youll have to buy new when you healed now?!?!? anyways I broke 2 ribs and pulled every muscle on the left side of my chest/shoulder, and back. While recovering I bought a new bike and started riding again within 3weeks...dh/freeriding is like a drug to me. Anyways yakusarider hope you get well soon.
    How's that dirt taste?
