WTB aftermarket rear shock for a 919

I'm looking for an aftermarket shock for a 919, prefer an ohlins or a penske. Can't justify the price of a new shock.

I don't think he wants new. You better use it a bit first.

I forgot to mention I'm looking for a used shock. While LDH's price is great its outside my budget.

You're kind of in a tough spot then because both the Ohlins and the Penske units are going to hold their value against a new price like that. Plus even if you do find a used one after a service to freshen it up and maybe a different spring rate depending on your weight & needs you are still looking at an additional $200 or so dollars.

All valid points and I agree but it doesn't hurt to ask. Someone might have what I'm looking for and need to free up some cash for the holidays.

@Pvster - he's looking to upgrade his bike and he's got an Ohlins ;-) Find him a Tuono and you'll have a deal.

I doubt my buddy Scott is willing to sell his 2016 1150 Factory. I'll have to find Pvster another T.

I have a Hagon. Started a thread about looking to sell it on the classifieds section. Will sell for less than half the Ohlins, so I can then buy an Ohlins for $918 from LDH...

Thanks for the offer but I'm going to pass on the Hagon. I's rather hold out for a higher end shock.

Anybody interested in selling a penske or ohlins? I'm thinking about pulling the string on a new one if no one has a used shock for sale.
