Can anyone tell me if they've changed their rear suspension to YSS and do they make a difference?
Also, are YSS adjustable if so. What setting would you recommend?

I have installed the YSS suspension, and i can say i have felt a big difference between them and the stock ones.
Issue i had with the stock ones, is that i am a large guy, and to stop the scooter bottoming out on bumps i would have to crank the preload to the max, which meant i had a very harsh ride.

The YSS have much better damping in my opinion, so the preload need not be so high, as todate i have not bottomed out, and it has a much better ride

They are adjustable as far as preloads go, but not damping. They used a threaded shock body, and collar, so in theory you have unlimited settings I left mine to the factory settings, and am perfectly happy with them

below is a link to my thread

I installed the YSS rear shocks and felt an improvement right away. Then I installed the Bikerzbits lowering brackets and noticed an even bigger improvement in the ride. It seems like they maybe change the geometry a little back there. Anyway the ride seems noticeably smoother now IMO. Definite upgrade to the suspension.
