    Hi my Honda FMX 650 needs a new rear shock. Original parts are mental prices. Are there any alternatives out there? Or had any one got one they want to part with? Cheers.

    Anyone have an old one ? Can't afford a new one at present. A worn out one that can be rebuilt is fine. Thanks.

    I am thinking of replacing my rear shock with a Wilburs Eco-line type 540 from Germany. Has anyone tried this shock and got any comments about it? :thumbup:

    I have just completed an upgrade of the rear shock spring, and have gone thru the complete dismantling of the bikes rear end. During this mammoth outting I was astounded with the difficulty of access to the carby due mainly to the enormous and cumbersome airbox, and in turn, the need to remove...

    Well lads the shock on the @ is not the best so I have been given 2 x replacement shocks. One is a standard rear shock with Showa MY1-601 on a sticker. I have this as a safe bet that can be put straight in. The other rear shock is also a showa with a sticker on it with mv1-003 on it. The...

    Does anyone have a rough idea as to how many km a rear shock should be able to handle? Mine appears a bit tired, has done at least 13 000. If replacing it, what should I be looking for and where would be the best place to source one?

    Hello; Just thought I'd do the suspension this weekend, forks and rear. I'm putting a new rear shock in. The piston rod seem a bit twisted, i.e. it doesn't line up flush with the linkage. I put bolt in at the top first, but didnt tighten it much just tight enough. See the pics Can I...

    I'm currently riding a xl650 v5 and more often than not have the bike seriously loaded on the back. 2 full paniers (about 75l) and two roll bags. Removing the weight not being an option I am wondering about adjusting the rear shock to cope with the weight. Either by installing a new shock or...

    One owner (me) 2003 Transalp in silver. 55k miles, bike is used all year round and lives outside so cosmetically challenged – also damage to RH panels from an “off” a few years back – nothing serious just road rash and small split. It had a new clutch at 40k, has fresh front discs, non...

    Getting to grips with my 92 RD04 but its still a bit on the big side. Dropped the forks 40mm but doubt I'll save much by cuttung into the seat and the pre load is only a quarter inch from the top. Solution seems to be a shorter rear shock. Cant work out the current length suspect one an inch or...
