Sourcing seems spotty, but these seem to be the most popular shocks in the giant gulf of space between ebay and higher end shocks. Dime City maybe has some selection, but it seems like the right model is out of stock at the moment? Shock Assy - 13 inch - Eye/Eye - Black - Black Springs - Slim - Hagon - XS650 - Pkg 2

There's a ton of YSS on ebay shipping from Italy or the UK, but I have no idea if that is legit or not.

Thoughts, suggestions? I'm not familiar enough with the correct spring rates to just guess on my own, but I know enough that 325mm-330mm is a good eye to eye measurement for install size.

You might want to consider whats in stock....
Christmas and Covid resurgance will effect Etas for out of stock items ..
For ebay id try to go official sites or a bricks and mortar shops ebay offerings to lessen the risk of fakes......

In the last 2 yrs I’ve fitted a YSS shock to one bike and a Hagon on my CX500E. Both are good but I think the Hagon is better and wish I’d put a Hagon on my NC700 too. They were about the same cost.

DSS (USA) as the UK office will redirect. .( I Tried to order from DSS USA...they sent my order to the UK...and all my dealings were thru the UK office as we are in their catchment)....
Dunno if Wemoto is widely used by USA members but highly recomnended....

I just ordered a YSS for my turbo from Wemoto. It was cheaper than in the US and shipping was free. Ordered on Saturday and had it within a week.
