Maybe you are not asking this question but....

As a rule, just because a shock fits doesn't mean it will work. There are all sorts of issues like suspension geometry. wheelbase, linkage ratios, bike weight, etc that makes shock design very specific to a bike. You might find a 16.5" Showa shock off a motocross bike - it won't work on your Buell!
