should I??

I havent ever messed with is the suspension. Thinking of buying these: Motorcycle Suspension by RICOR Shocks

any input would be great, I havent really found any reviews on the rear shock for the Wee

Other options, Wilbers, Elka, probably others. You can also have it rebuilt/revalved.

They all seem to result in a lot better than stock performance :)

Another option to consider is Jay Jobes at Suspension by Sasquatch. I have a rear shock that he reworked along with the front suspension that I rebuilt with parts I bought from him.

I ran a Ricor Shock on my KLR with great results. I beat the heck out of it off road and it held up fine! Customer service is top notch as well. The guy "Brian" there seems to know a little bit about suspension. He hit the nail on the head with my shock setup and then helped me get the forks dialed in to match...He spent alot of time with me for a pretty small amount of money.
