The Yamaha YXZ1000R SS models boast fully adjustable long travel FOX® 2.5 Podium Shocks with 16-inches of travel in front and 17-inches out back. The piggyback reservoir shock absorbers provide confidence and comfort through tough terrain, over deep whoops, and throughout all-day off-road punishment.
New for 2017, the Special Edition (SE) YXZ1000R and YXZ1000R SS acquire industry-first twin-wall FOX® 2.5 Podium X2 Shocks®. These unparalleled shocks were developed in tandem with Yamaha specifically and exclusively for the new Special Edition YXZ models, providing ultimate slow speed comfort without sacrificing performance during aggressive driving situations combined with unprecedented adjustability to suit a variety of driving types and preferences.
A new level of performance and comfort are achieved by creating completely independent high and low speed compression and rebound adjustment, combined with huge 16.2-inches of front and 17.0-inches of rear travel. Additional features of the X2 shocks include dual adjusters on the upper cap and twin tube structure, dual springs with coupling and crossover adjustment, position sensitive damping, and more.
