Rear shocks #1
Any suggestions for a 1974 250 Mx A for rear shocks? Bike does get raced with AHRMA so max travel is 4”.
Thanks
EZ

I think the best option would be Curnutt if you can find em, but I'm also not the most knowledgeable at just about anything.

Curnutts are awesome if you get Scott to rebuild/set them up for you. They are odd though... some people don't like them because you have to actually ride the bike to get them to work.

If I was racing and couldn't get Curnutts, I'd probably contact RaceTech or Ohlins and have a set custom made.
