    Default Looking for FZ6R 2009 compatible rear monoshock

    I'm looking for a new shock, mine has a seal leak and even on it's highest/firmest setting it feels mushy. With a second rider my license plate hits the rear wheel on bumps.

    I know the options to rebuild it with Racetech, but I'm also interested in a clean switch with one. Please PM me if you have one for sale that does not have seal leaks.

    thanks.

    Hey MNGreg, I have but the suspension companies I reached out to that handle Ohlins for USA did not ever reply to me, nor was I able to source a new model for my bike from their website. I know the Racetech new suspension starts at $1k+, I'm just hard pressed to spend that much on this bike instead of just upgrading the a Street Triple or Daytona 675 that already come with the better suspension.

    If you know of any Ohlins models that would be a direct fit for an 09 FZ6r, please share the model number(s) so I can check them out.

    A Google search for "(fz6r OR xj6) Ohlins shock" brings up a lot of pages referencing the Ohlins STX46 S46DR1.
