I'm wanting to put some modern shocks on the mbk 51 I'm building and the lightest motorcycle I've found with matching shock size is the new Honda Monkey, weighing around 220 lbs dry.

I've found these really nice shocks with preload and rebound adjustment

I'm wondering if they could work or if the springs would be too hard.

Has anyone successfully used small motorcycle shocks?
