Looking to be that time again. I have a handful. After that, no more.

You could. You'll still need dogbones though. I only have enough sets for the shocks I have though so I can't do much there.

How easy would it be to change these on my 89 and what are the benefits of changing them?

About an hour of work and the benefit of having 20+ years of suspension technology improvement now under your bike. You'd have preload, hi/low speed compression and rebound settings. Basically your bike will feel like a whole new bike underneath you.

Install is basically something like this:

Loosen top and bottom shock bolts.
Loosen dogbone bolts.
begin to lift bike from under engine area until suspension is unloaded.
Remove dogbones and shock.
Replace with new dogbones and shock.
Use supplied spacers and top bolt when reassembly begins.
Reassemble.

Yes, there is a little more finesse than that but overall that's the meat of it. Someone with limited mechanical aptitude and tools can perform this swap. Otherwise, even $100 at a shop would be worth it if you don't feel comfortable doing it. Your bike and your butt will thank you.

I also have a new '07 R6 shock and really need the shock spacer/bolt/dogbone kit in a bad way! If anyone here can help me out or give me dimension's to machine my own I would really appreciate it huge! I have everything to do the complete YZF rear end swap except for these last few parts. Weather is getting nice and I want to get this done asap.

Please let me know if someone can make me a kit and the cost. Thanks!

Nate would you be willing to sell just the new shock bolt and bushings? Also can you make a set of dog bones that would raise the rear end ~1 inch from stock?

I just found an 07 R6 shock for my 93 FZR600. Would the dogbones and bushings still be available? I am also located in Chicago.

I have the hardware kits but no shocks. A full kit can be produced but payment would have to be made upfront.
