I can measure when I get home. If steve doesn't already know.... and BTW steve, looks like i'm dropping on a shock to you maybe, so I'll be in touch when I head up to hunter liggett.

XR600 10.2 kg/mm

XR650l 10.5 kg/mm

These are the OE springs spec's

cool, then an xr650l spring would be better...if the diamater is the same...for some reason I thin 91 and up(pigyyback shocks) increased in diameter too...

I know the body went from something like 38mm to 44! a pretty big increase....thatswhy I wanted a piggyback shock...but

this should work fine though!

Deal

Ya know what we can do is we trade my XRL shock + some $$ for that Excel rim and the bars . Once my friend does my shock with the Race Tech valve I can send the OE shock from my XRL to Neil for his magic. All I have to do is kick my bud in the ass to get the shock done.

What do you think?? Would you have wanted the shock shipped to you or were you going to wait till you came back up to get it??
