    I have a set of GYT front clicker shocks, 16.5" eye to eye. Currently mounted on my Apex. Will fit the Vectors also. In very good condition, do not have "GYT" stickers on them. $300.

    EDIT: There is no stirkeout font but ignore this is wrong... :)

    Just FYI (And I know you probably know and took pictures while adjusting the shock but just in case) That other ring at the top of your shock should be lowered to touch the other one to lock it in place. (Just mentioning it since I see a lot of guys riding with the lock ring up like that.)

    That is incorrect. That "other" aluminum ring at the top stays there. On top of the spring you have a steel adjuster nut with an aluminum adjuster nut locking it. This is the way the ALL are including the 2 sets that I have.

    Good to know (sorry new Yamaha guy) Almost all car adjustable shocks I've seen use that ring as a locking ring. What's the purpose of it?

    I think looks only. If you look under the lower aluminum one, you will see a steel adjuster nut as well so there IS positive locking already there holding the spring preload.

    Ok cool gotcha sorry about polluting your thread with chatter :)

    Edit: also thought after if the shocks are height adjustable they might have a locking ring up there.

    They have the 2 locking collars in the proper place. As stated in reply, the top ring is stationary.

    Yes I realize now that shock length is probably adjustable and that is the lock ring for the top.

    Great for trail riding, more adjustments possible.
