OK here is my quandry. I won $115 in contingency money from a local suspension shop and I'm not sure how to spend it. My bike is a '99 KX 250 and I have the stock suspension set-up as good as I can get it. I just rebuilt the forks (new bushings, seals, fluid, take apart and clean). As far as I know, the shock has never been serviced. So my prediciment is as follows, should I:
A. use the money to get the shock serviced cost is $90 and buy something else with the extra $$
B. use the money and get the shock revalved cost is $150 (I've got $45 to put toward)
C. Leave the shock alone and get the forks revalved cost is $150.

The shock seems to work well now and I only have enough money for one of the options.
Thanks for the input

if your happy with the shock get the shock service...The shock gets most of the abuse so some new fluids would help alot.

C. Revalve for $150 - well spent if the shop is good!

PS>> The shock should be serviced yearly - have you ever felt the reservoir after a hard ride?

If your forks are fresh and $$ is tight then service the shock. A fresh stock KYB is not bad.
