RE302 Shock Absorber by YSS

If you’re looking for a replacement for the stock Boge shock on your BMW K75 but the YSS MZ366 we reviewed is out of your price range, consider the YSS RE302.

Last issue we tested three rebound-adjustable shocks for the BMW K75. Sampled but not reviewed at that time was the YSS RE302, an economical alternative featuring preload adjustment only. Following our tested trio, we installed the RE302 and were highly impressed with its performance. Main differences between it and the issue-tested YSS MZ366 are a smaller, 12mm shaft (16mm on the MZ366) and smaller shock body. Yet with preload properly set, it performed far better than a stock Boge, and for the money it’s a bargain. $219. More info: EPM Performance Imports.
