Anyone have a rear shock of any year 650 or 1000
« on: April 10, 2018, 18:30:31 »
Hello,

I recently bought a dl650 but the rear shock has now failed which is annoying. Does anyone have a shock they could sell me?

Nahh it's u/s ma mate. I put a Hyperpro on the stock shock and it made all the difference.

Upgrade if you can. I have my old shock, but from 09, with 32k on it and I'm not sure if it works as it should (never ridden another stock Strom). It was sagging down 60mm with 95kg rider on it  :shrug:.
