Stock shock

Mine finally wore out and my back is getting jolted on the wonderful streets of Toronto (as it becomes a new third world capital with the bumpiest streets patrolled by the highest-paid cops in the world).

Anyone got one that still works?

I don't think it's a case of being worn out. As much as its a piece of shit with a stiff spring. I used my first one for about 140k kms. It still worked fine but swapped it for an '05 which is a little softer with a little bit of adjustment. Try to find an '04 or newer, they're a little more forgiving here in the great white north.

Or just break down and buy an Ohlins and let it transform the bike for you...

Rear shock from a '07 919

I have a stock rear shock from my '07 919 that I just listed on eBay. The listing is for both the rear shock and front forks but I could revise it because there are no bidders yet. Or I can make you a good deal on the full suspension set.

I'm selling both because I upgraded, so there is nothing wrong with either. The bike had 15k miles when I took them off. Let me know ASAP if you are interested.

Thanks,
Gary

I have one from an 02, very low miles on the shock...if you want it.

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!
