Hello guys ,

i was just wondering if anyone tried to replace the rear shock from another model Honda/Yamaha..etc ?
the aftermarket is too expensive and new OEM as well . i see a lot of good rear shocks in good condition and cheap as well from other bikes

any idea ?
thanks
speaking about SD01/02 wouldn't matter much.

Nitron, Hyperpro, Shock Factory or Hagon or even new OEM which are reasonably priced new at £300 – £400

M Shocks

But if you really want something cheap then you'll need to measure the shock length and stroke of your Varadero''s shock and consult this chart

"This chart is a useful starting point for anyone wanting to replace the standard shock in their bike. You will obviously need to match up length and stroke of your bikes shock as closely s possible - be careful though, this chart does not cover top and bottom shock mount types, reservoir type and position, spring rates or internal valving "

Thanks for the info. that was really the idea.. replacing with another used OEM.. many are so cheap on ebay and this is due to the model is not popular
