I have a 2018 yz450f, have a chance to get a really good deal on a rear a kit shock supposedly fits 18 yz250f.. anyone got an idea if It will work? I didn’t think they changed the shock much from the last gen bike. Thanks

I have yet to verify this first hand, but read on here that 2018 250 or 2017 450 shocks WON'T work on 2018+ 450 or 2019+ 250.

That’s what the guy said that he had it for the 18 250f and then got a 19’, I am not sure he tried to install it but Enzo told him it wouldn’t work... I got to thinking about it as well and I am not sure if he realized my 18 is the same chassis as the 19’ 250. I might call Enzo to confirm.

Yea it will work. I’m running a kit off my 17 on my 18 450. It bolts right up with no issues and handles the same as it did with the 18 shock in there. Photo

To sell more A kits I assume! It’s probably something trivial like a valving change or a small parts change. Something I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.
