04+ Stock Rear Shock

Hi guys, I'm looking for 2004+ stock shock for my 919 2002.
It was my first season on this bike, but my current shock it's just dying and I'm looking for fit.

Don't bother. the 04+ is only mariginally better, but still woeful.

Just get a quality aftermarket unit and you won't regret it.

04+ shock is a good budget mod--really tames down the seat-a-pult on sharp bumps/expansion joints once you dial the rebound in a bit.

I'm sure you're right about it. But I just can't pay $$$$ for aftermarket shock, even second hand it's still too expensive for my. That is why I'm looking for 04+ stock.

Very much worth the change, IMHO. I did this mod (along with the forks) years ago on my 02 919. I weight 160 without gear and the stock suspension simply beat me to death.

Amen to that! Did you upgrade shock and spring?
