I have recently just picked up a 2017 FC250 after coming off a 2017 SXF350 and wanted to ask a question about the shock bladder. Is the bladder in the picture below an upgraded bladder? Its definitely different to the silver body the 350 had so just wondering if anybody knows the make of this one?

Cheers!

For some reason I feel like Kreft does the gold bladder body. But again anyone could have just had it done in that color.

Is it a racetech one? They like gold lol.

I saw one of the sdi conversions, it looked massive... the shock is a big enough pain to get on and off even with the small OEM reservoir

I have the MX tank unit, and yes it's big... Looks sweet with the Kashima coating though...

I had Factory Connection bladder/reservoir installed and its larger than stock and a pain in the butt to get in there. At one point I thought no way but eventually its goes by a millionth of an inch.

Just pull the swingarm and the shock goes in easy.

This. It doesn't matter which bladder kit you have, they are all a pain in the ass to remove if you try to do it with out unbolting the swing arm.

Take the swing arm off. It's actually less work and the shock comes right out.
