Hi all,On
Just thought i would share the new suspension i purchased from yss, you can only buy it direct from the manufacturers in Thailand at the moment but it's a total bargain and exquisitely made, handles like a charm and makes my scooter absolutely rock solid at speeds in excess of 100mph.
Bikerbitz Thailand 88.00 per unit there was must be a mistake on the price as i would gladly put them in the same category as bi turbo and Malossi for quality.
Cheers Andy.

Very cool scoot'!
I've been trying to find YSS for BV350 to no avail here in the USA, including the national contact.
Do you think your contact in Thailand could help?

Hi buddy,
I had the same problem here across the pond, yss is a Thai company so if you don't find something suitable on their website then it's not made!,
The shocks i bought do not exist in the UK , if you trawl through the Thai yss catalogue you will more than likely find a shock with the correct ends that will fit your application, although it may be advertised for a different bike, that is how i found these, i looked at pictures on Google images then found the page and model number then searched the web, it took time and effort but it was worth it in the end as i have the only piaggio scoot in the UK with this rather exotic yss shock set up.
Cheers Andy.

Here you go,
Front. https://bikerzbits.com/vespa-lx-125-150-yss-shock-absorbers-front-vk302-200t-03-85.html

Rear. https://bikerzbits.com/vespa-lx-125-150-yss-shock-absorbers-rear-oo302-280t-03-85.html

Search the site, or manually search the yss Thailand catalogue i have a set of rear shocks for my runner on the way (same as GTS ) and a GTS front shock.
I will post pictures when they arrive and i get round to fitting them.

As a scooter enthusiast from Thailand I wouldn't touch the YSS.
They fail far too frequently on all other brands it would be the last brand of suspension on my vespas.
Yes it's that badly received here, even in the country of manufacture.
Sorry.

Well, i for one have used yss suspension for many many years and i have never got a dud , perhaps i have been lucky who knows, but the many many people that i have recommended the suspension to have not reported back as having failures either.
So we only have your word on the matter that yss are inferior, does yss themselves know their products are rubbish? Or for the fact they are used globally by millions of bikers and automobiles maybe says more than enough about their quality than your own opinion and summary statement!

I'm just giving my opinion from a local market prospective.
Load of guys put these on the PCX 150, Honda Xzoomer aka Grom and find them not lasting even a year before the leaks start.
The main shaft of the suspension is suspect to bending which in turn rips the seals out.

I'm not trying to bag the product. Just after seeing them around for nearly a decade I know how long they last.
Basically you get what you pay for. It's a budget suspension built in a third world environment. 88 pound what does that tell you.

Absolutely fantastic value for money, I've just returned from a good 100+ mile test run at speeds in excess of 105 mph (gps ).
ROCK SOLID if i only get a few thousand miles out of them before they destroy themselves and spontaneously combust (odds on they won't ) i'll be extremely happy,
Excellent quality.
Andy.

maybe different quality for home market
Hey mick,
Over the pond many years ago we made cars, they were shite if you bought one UK spec made for the home market, however a European spec, say for Germany would have all the bells and whistles including electronic ignition and rust proofing.
The parts i got from yss have ce marks and have a tuv certificate so are a tested product that confirms to international manufacturing standards.
Cheers Andy.

Sorry for questioning your purchase. I've tried to give insight into a product I've known since its infancy.
If you're happy with them I'm happy for you and good luck.

I just got some for the rear of my GTS. Haven't installed them yet but had a set
on a GT200 I used to own and really liked them. They held up for several years
and many thousands of miles as well.
