The Stage 5 ATV REAR shocks for the YAMAHA YFZ450R All Years are the latest evolution of our high-performance racing platform. They are designed around 3 key performance factors: high hydraulic flow, lightweight components and low-friction internal and moving parts. The massive oil displacement of our new High-Flow internals allow a much more precise tuning and smoother damping action than any other ATV shock currently available for the YAMAHA YFZ450R All Years. Riders can get better bump absorption, greater comfort and will reduce their lap times significantly. There is no need to explain all the obvious benefits from reducing the overall weight of your ATV. By using lightweight components, such as our new redesigned springs, the ELKA Stage 5 ATV shocks not only helps reduce overall weight but they can also be more responsive because there is less mass to move (less inertia). The ELKA Stage 5 ATV shocks low friction internals dramatically reduce the stiction, the initial stickiness caused by the friction of internal moving parts against the seals. All those features combined make the ELKA Stage 5 ATV Shock the most comfortable and best performing racing shocks for the YAMAHA YFZ450R All Years on the market today.If you require faster shipment, have any kind of questions, or wish to inquire about other international shipping options, please contact us!

ELKA Shocks custom built for your YAMAHA YFZ450R All Years:
Custom setup includes: Make/Model/Year, Riders Weight, Type of Riding (Recreational Trails, MX Racing, XC Racing, Desert, Dunes or Flat Track Racing), A-Arms/Swingarm Setup and Tires. Basically each ELKA Shock is individually designed for your exact application, build time is just 15 days. Once we receive your order we will contact you to gather all required information for the Setup!
Threaded Spring Preload: Lets the rider fine-tune the initial force applied on the springs and precisely balance the weight distribution across the front and rear wheels while setting up the ride height (ground or chassis clearance) and to lower or raise the vehicle to adapt to various situations or to suit your personal preference. Turn the preload adjustment ring clockwise (from top of the shock) to increase preload and raise the vehicle or turn counter-clockwise to reduce preload and lower the vehicle.
High-Speed Compression: Allows fine-tuning of the damping resistance when the shock is being compressed quickly. This adjustment controls the resistance upon landing from jumps, harsh or sudden square-edged impacts, riding at high speed over whoops , choppy terrain or tire tracks. Turn the black knob clockwise to increase damping resistance, therefore making the suspension stiffer or turn counter-clockwise to reduce damping resistance, therefore making the suspension softer.
Low-Speed Compression: Allows fine-tuning of the damping resistance when the shock is being compressed slowly. This adjustment controls body roll when cornering, rear-end squatting under hard acceleration, front-end diving when braking, riding over whoops at moderate speed, undulations and elevation changes in the terrain. Turn the red knob clockwise to increase damping resistance, therefore making the suspension stiffer or turn counter-clockwise to reduce damping resistance, therefore making the suspension softer.
Rebound: Controls the speed at which the shock absorber returns to its fully extended position after being compressed from an impact, keeping the wheels on the ground for maximum traction and reducing the bucking effect caused by the spring pressure pushing back after an impact. Turn the adjuster clockwise to slow down the rebound or turn counter-clockwise to speed up the rebound.
36mm or 46mm inside diameter hard anodized aluminum body with integrated PTFE coating mated to low-friction internal components
Sturdy 16mm induction hardened shafts
Multi-seal, low-friction seal head design that prevents debris and water infiltration, therefore extending the shock life in harsh conditions
Proprietary oil blend with ultra-low friction light viscosity grade which is ultra-resistant to high operating temperatures
High-pressure nitrogen valve core design rated at over 800 psi to prevent nitrogen leaks from peak pressure generated upon major hits.
