I was doing some work on my bike today and it appears that my shock body threads are in bad shape.
I am looking into replace the shock body and rebuild the shock or simply buy a new fully assembled shock.
I was wondering if the shock form the 2012 will fit or what other year wr450's might fit?
Thank you for any advice.
Yes, a 2012-2015 wr450f rear shock will fit on a 2007-2011 wr450f. I had 2012 wr450f forks and shock on my 2008 wr450f, they fitted and worked perfectly!
You have to use the rear shock upper mounting bushes from the 07-11 bike in the 12-15 rear shock and it'll bolt right up.
You will gain greater exhaust clearance too as the 2012-2015 rear shock has a needle type nitrogen filler rather than a schrader valve.
