Honestly the best mod i have done to my bike. The stock front suspension is nothing more than some small crappy springs that make the bike really feel cheap. We went ahead and installed some gas shocks (Brand: Strong Arm, part #: 4106) on our X's. These gas shocks make such a huge difference, almost makes it seem like we arent riding on $300 dollar bikes....no more clunking, so smooth over small bumps,and drastically improved handling . Sorry for the crappy pics, I took them late night. More to follow in the next few days...

install is fairly simple, some filing is definitely needed, one hole needs to be drilled, another needs to be made larger and a few bolts and nuts. Each shock does not break the bank @ $10 a pop. I will put a small install guide together soon.
