I'm familiar with the thread, but didn't find what I was looking for. Some people mention KLR650 shock, other than than I found one shock for $600ish.

So, did you have the 650 shock on yours? How does it work for you? Any changes to the front springs to compensate for the stiffer rear, or did you leave your front stock?

I love the little KLR for woods riding, I just don't want to bounce around too much
