Hi All. Long time no post. I do hope you're all well.

My rear shock is getting a bit long in the tooth and I want to start looking to replace it. My bike is 100% road going these days so I would not be against a road set up rear shock, so does anyone know what fits? I know there are lots of direct replacements but my bike is a bit of a rat bike these days so anything that works would do, the bike itself is on 17" wheels front and rear.

Also, can the OEM rear shock be rebuilt? New seals etc and any idea of how much that would cost?

No options like a cbr600 or vfr or KTM shock to fit?

Does anyone know of another shock that fit's the Africa but with more travel ?
Would like to raise the bike, use it only for offroad. Can I rebuild hte shock and change in anyway to make it "taller"?
