WTH?! The reservoir isn’t even connected to the body? At least the RFY’s have a functional N2 bladder and shim stack for damping!

This is why I tell everyone who will listen....if you buy cheap Chinese shocks ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS take them apart, check them, and rebuild them before use. The biggest savings in the auto/motorcycle parts business doesn't come from using cheap materials but from skipping quality control.

This case happens to be a pretty egregious example of cheeping on design, materials, and quality control, and what's more shocking is that I believe that this shock was on a race bike and this was discovered during a race when the rider tangled with another rider. A simple teardown and inspection would have revealed this beforehand.

Not everything from china is junk, but for every dollar you save, you compromise something, make sure you are willing to give up what you are giving up for that money. not every bike needs $1000 ohlins, but every bike doesn't need that hot mess up top.

Some kind of 'race' scooter? That's a belt or gear housing , probably CVT?
