Post suspension question
I'm looking at a malossi shock, what does it mean if it says 280mm or 310mm?

If you have a prebug go with the malossi 280mm shock, it's great and if you get one longer you will have to get the side kickstand. When I put mine down the wheel still touches, the center kickstand just balances the scooter

Me too, but that slightly longer shock helps SOOOOO much. My centerstand is like yours, but it has never tipped over. Still do need to get a sidestand though.
