    Complete new rear shock setup for a TL1000R

    I am trying to replace the rear shock on my landspeed TLR and to remove the 19 year old non working dampener unit.A company here in the USA has been tying to help me but I would have to leave the dampener unit in the smallest spring diameter they can get is 2.97 inches it will hit stock dampener linkage arm.Leaving dampener is dead weight I want to replace shock and remove dampener unit I need a shock 9.5 inches in length measuring from center to center on upper and lower shock mount bolt..The TLZONE has bailed me out many times I am hoping you TL owners can do it AGAIN...GO FAST BE SAFE And THANK YOU !!!!!

    The 1098 Showa shock is the "cheap" rear end upgrade for the R rear. You have to cut the tab on the frame though...

    This is the package you want.
    Wilbers Model 641.
    Fully adjustable and excellent quality.

    The shock company that was helping keeps telling me I cant just remove dampener unit and replace shock I need dampener unit to maintain ride height and I need to install a working mechanism if I remove dampner?

    When I first started looking Ohlins said shock kit # SU-806 would work but I cant find new one.

    Not much difference in price between the Ohlins and the Wilbers new...
