Will the factory shock off of an 85 YZ250 bolt right in place of the factory shock on my 83 YZ250? I think that that 85-89's had the same shock, but I'm not sure if the demensions are the same as my 83 shock. Can anyone help me out? Thanks for the help.
If you remove your shock and take it to whoever you are going to buy it from you can just match it up. You will also need to check the compressed length which will require removing the springs. I also think the YZ line changed a lot in 1988 if I remember correctly. If you have the time take measurements. If it fits, ride real carefully on the first ride untill you get used to it.
