Any shock can be made to fit. Check the eyelet sizes and type, check the shock length etc, I just went down the easy route and fitted a brand new nitron instead

Yeah about £400 delivered.

Yss are fine, nothing wrong with them, I guarantee that the capability of that shock is more than your capabilities as a rider.

If you find that you are better than the yss shock then feel free to upgrade, but on a ~30 year old bike it's not going to make a lot of difference.

I went with a nitron as it looks gorgeous, is rebuildable and has a nice black spring...
