Ok, the shock body is the same on YZ125 1998-2005, yz250 1998-2005, yz250f 2001-2005, yz400f 1999, yz426f 2000-2002, yz450f 2003-2005, wr250f 2006, wr450f 2006.

With that said, internal components may differ especially valving.



Here's a few, I assume your looking to buy one......

It's unlikely that your shock would need more than a seal head, a piston band, and a fluid change, but it could be worse. As far as I know, the '06 will fit your bike. I believe it is slightly longer, but it will work.

Call Smart Performance and ask them what it will cost, when they did mine, It was pretty cheap.
