Anyone with YSS Topline shocks? I've a 2016 GTS 150 with over 100Km on it and am looking for shocks that take the edge off of cobblestone roads.

Has anyone tried them? Thanks.

standard shocks should be gentle on cobblestones (unless yours are completely worn out or leaking). But since the are standard are soft you can 'bottom them out' on deep potholes. Sport shocks like yss will be no softer, typically firmer.

This is the problem. My understanding is shocks either work or they don't, and when they don't work it's because the seals are gone and the oil leaks out. There isn't any leak and the front compresses easily and comes back without much of a bounce. The rears appear to squat, but this may be my imagination. I'm concerned I'll drop a $1000 and find no improvement. What is worn? It would be much easier if they just leaked.

The bike has 100,000 km on it. I intend to keep it. So I'll take the chance and hope for improvement.
