  • Shouldn't be as most parts from 88 onwards fit. What you looking for

  • Pretty much everything engine related is similar from 88-04

  • Yeah. I'm here with an 86 having trouble sourcing engine parts

  • Isn't it 89+ which are the same?

  • I've been looking for a rear shock for my 85 and haven't seen anything

  • 85 / 86 250 shock should fit the 500

  • Thanks. I wasn't sure if the 86 would bolt up or not

  • 89 and up. 86-87 same 88 odd year.

  • What about the 85 though?

  • Way different

  • So would only an 85 rear shock bolt up to it or would any other years fit too? I've been having trouble finding a replacement because mine is shot

  • He's my 85. 85-86, 250 and 500 rear shock work in both years and models.

  • i thinking of a cylinder head, mine was machined for lower compression when it was in a quad.
