I think im going to try and build it up. Trouble is going to be finding
a rear shock that will work for this setup.
Yeah thats a good point actually.
This bike being a proto theres not gonna be any info on what size shock it's designed to
Anything Fox will do the trick valving wise, but as far as shock length and stroke go it
might need a little trial and error.
This is a little trick that should you work it out on your own.
Start off by hookin that dog bone up properly and top out the swingarm (by making sure
it's as far down as it can go. Measure the distance between the centre's of the two shock
mount holes. Whatever that number is, go to the Fox website and check the rear shock
details for the length closest to the number you have (round down the the next smallest
size if there isn't the exact same length) and that should be the size you want. Depending
on what size that is there may be two differant stroke lengths available. If so, to check
this just do the trick i mentioned before but instead of doin it with the swingarm topped
out, do it bottomed (so the suspension all the way compressed) take that number and
minus it from the original number you got and that should give you a very rough stroke
Double check it against the fox sizes and once again round down to the shorter stroke
(there is such a thing as too much travel, especially when your seat hits your rear tyre!)
That should help get the right shock for what you need. Something like a VanR should
look the part and not break the bank while being a good little performer.
Being a proto, remember to check the frame for cracks before riding won't ya!
