You'll have to bring it to Power O. It is NKNI but I'm getting lonely since my Kat broke almost a year ago.

Started first press of the button when I got it off teh trailer which is a first considering the crap I buy. The plastics at the front are worse than the photos so that will be the first serach. Other than that I love it - I was just sat there for about 15 minutes looking at the bike - even my dear other half understood why...........

Brakes are shit and the rear end will be soft as something that is really soft but I ride mine as often as I can. I love that 80's racer bucket fairing feeling.

How long is the shock in these things? 315mmish?

I've had the '85 750 and currently have an '87 1100.
Ive also ridden one with later brakes and an R1 or 6 shock and it was great.
The rear shocks are renowned for having been heat treated badly.

Ben, I think you're bang on with the 315mm. The biggest limiter is that it's an eye at each end where a lot of similar length/stroke shocks have a clevis lower mount.

Apparently the 2000(ish) R1/6 shocks fit but then you must move the battery to get around the reservoir and its lowered slightly. Or a BMW 1000RR fits too.

Ah, same issue as the RG (I had an R6 shock on my RG, made a huge difference). I have a S1000RR shock here - was going to use it on a WN GSXR but have abandoned that one and sold most of it off - they're clevis bottom mounts (same as Slingshot GSXR though I think). The S1000RR shock is a really nice piece - High and low speed compression damping adjustment, very light... may still wind up using it on another project with a bit of a re-spring.

Bugger, I read on OSS that the Beemer shock is useable. Oh well. I'll just continue warbling my way through the hills and braking early to make sure they're still there.

Yeah, the BMW shock works if it's a clevis lower mount...
I've got a 93 swinger and linkage that will work with the BMW shock that is allegedly a bolt in job?
