If this is a GL500, rather than the 650, the clevis is on the linkage, not on the shock. To mount a shock with a clevis, you'll need to find or cut appropriate-length collars to keep it centered. You may also want to sleeve it, so it doesn't wear on the bolt. The bracket on the linkage will be wider than the clevis on the shock.however if someone can tell me in advance how much the yamaha's shock's clevis needs to be widened to work, i'd prefer to make my mods to the replacement before i pull the stock off
And both mounts use a 10mm bolt, unless I'm mistaken.
