1989 xr600

#1 Post by Jim​ M » Thu Jun 28, 2018 3:10 am

Hi all,

I'm looking for a rear shock for my 1989 XR 600
Current one is potentially unsalvageable. Spring heavily degraded etc.

I'm at a bit of a loss being new to all this.

Will something else fit?
Is it possible to upgrade?

Any help appreciated,

Have you tried these people?

If your shock is irredeemable then you might consider buying a used one that is in better condition and having that rebuilt.
If there's one positive we can take from the Tory leadership campaign, it's that they can always find ways to make things worse.
