    '04 DAKAR SPORT - Rear shock upgrade?
    going on a trip out to the west for some riding. i've had my bike for a while and all my buddies just got new ones, so of course im lookin to upgrade. Anybody got any suggestions for a new rear shock as mine is coil and kinda old.

    or should i just leave it alone/worry bout a fork first?

    i bout this thing for like 750 so if all that stuff will cost more than i should be putting into it that's something id wonder about too. let me know if you guys got any help for me. thanks

    Probably not worth upgrading. But if you must, the Fox Float seems to be the most recommended rear shock. I think your frame takes a 6.5 x 1.5.

    If you look on eBay, you can get a Float real cheap and if not beat up to bad, use the same spacers from the shock you have currently. It's a great frame, I don't believe it's not worth it. I have 2 as well as a Dakar XLT and Sette Riddk. I ride my sport quite a bit, it just feels so comfortable.
