    Unless you Pre-Run, stick with monotubes. You will be paying several hundred more for a part that you will not ultimately use. The is used to cool whatever is inside the shock absorber, which is not necessary under normal driving conditions.

    Otherwise, if you're super gung-ho on the resi's, Check out the Fox 2.0's... made with the same quality components as the King shocks, and in some aspects, better. Steel braided line inside of rubber. Ribbed reservoir instead of a solid body. Not to mention several hundred less.

    Talk to Johnnym, he's running Icon RR's with his Dakars and seems to like them.

    I agree with Dirty5Thirty though. Unless you need the high speed dampening, remote resi's aren't necessary, the standard shock from Icon, Fox, King or even OME or a higher end Bilstein will be more then sufficient and a lot less money.
