Hope this thread takes off I need guidence.
Progressive 465 rear shock - I hear these are very good shocks - at a reasonable price. Please let us know how it works for you.

Front forks on my 89 gs replaced fork oil with ATF - ATF is 7 to 10 weight (dextron). Works great very happy. The gs airheads are good off road just stay away from the loose sand no fun. It's kinda hard to just crank on the gas to get the front wheel light to go through the loose stuff. ( think 2-stroke). Stock front forks are adequate if you really want to upgrade
Drz400 forks or dr650 fit I believe. But stock forks work!!

Do want to hear on the Progressive 465 rear shock as at 1/2 or less than an ohlins would be a good buy if it works.
