Best modern shock replacement for 91-92 GSX-R


Recommended Posts

..... i'll play along with this one and quote a shock distributor.:


- do you ride track / race / off - road ?

- do you ride solo / duo?

- do you ride with luggage?

- what do you weigh incl gear?

- are you fast or slow?

- what is your budget?

- etc....

just some of the  questions I got from Hyperpro.


My point is... what might work for me - 115 kg incl gear, mostly solo and sedate commuting - will not be the best option for you IF you are a light weight jockey and dragrace it all the time.

Welcome btw..... hop over to general and introduce yourself ;)

As allready  noted , it's all about use/cost/Spec! Every one has a difference of opinion and experiences. We have all tried many conatations over years, some work some don't .ive used ohlins/hagon/k tech/ wp/  Oem gsxr k4/5 fit well ,  I've just modded a Nitron bandit shock Ntr2 to suit my needs . But hey what ever you find to suit your bike, Just make it happen.

One of the best rear shock is Ohlins SU503. This shock is for the GSXR 1000 K5/K6. I have used this shock for all my race builds GSXR 750 -88, GSXR 1100 -90 with GSXR 750 -95 swingarm, including a GSXR 750 RR.

I need to ask? How? I have a `91 750, with a `95 arm. I bought an `06 1000 shock and it won't fit. Seems the upper mount just doesnt line up.

I Second that on the BMW S1000R. 2009-2014 Will fit straight in. 

stroke is a few mm short and so is the height eye to eye. But u will not notice the difference. 
stocks ones go for £150 Or so. And an Ohlins u might get for £800
