Guess Cat wants to put better shocks on the Mountain Cat 600.....FOR FREE. Yes Yammie owners, this isn't like the Vipers where the owners had to buy the shocks.

SH, Yamaha did not have a defect. It was not broken. If it's broken then you should get the part for no cost. Read Yamaha's bulletin and you my understand why they made the offer. I still use the stock shock setting on my SXViper.Plus they did not change the STD SXViper shock setting for 2003.

Yammi owners did not pay for the shock, they paid for the labor. And if they were smart, they also kept the original shock as well. Not bad for $189!

Vineyard, Yamaha paid 1.2 hrs for the labor + $25.00 parts handling to the dealer. customer paid 189.00 for the Kit all 4 shocks. Plus it was a kit for suspension compliance for a softer ride. Most of the guys I know did not want that setting so the kept the stock setting. One friend brought these shocks and went back to his stock setting because it was to soft for his riding style. The bottom line the OEM shock for 2003 on the SXViper were not broken.

Regardless, they got new shocks, kept the replacements, got a softer ride, and paid $189. If they chose to. No brainer! Save the old shock for the back up

mtntank, One setting does not work for everone.The ZR and Zl are not for the same customer. Needs to fit your riding style. That's why you can buy the SXViper ER or S models.

It sounds like one big headache to me. Why didn't they make the shocks adjustable in the first place??? paying 189 and dealing with the hassle is not something i'd like to deal with during the riding season!
