Hey all. It looks like itís time to replace my shocks. Any advice on what to get? Iím 5 10, around 170lbs ride with a passenger frequently who weighs anywhere from 110 - 200.

Was told stock are around $300 for a set but would be willing to spend a little more if thereís a good reason.

Thanks in advance for the helpful suggestions![/quote]

Get a set of Bitubos. They are the single best improvement you can do to a MP3. Shame on Piaggio for selling such a expensive bike with a suspension that is about as comfortable as a brick wrapped in a bit of rubber.

How do I know which size to get? I know the 2008 mp3 250 has 12 inch wheels. Does it use the same shocks as other Piaggio scooters? Finding a lot for the 400 and 500 but not the 250
