He works full time, especially this weekend, on those real important world issues like the Super Bowl

And he will be thanked thousand of times by overpaid athletes, office pool participants, deviant gamblers,bookies, advertising executives etc.

I hope no starving kids, people subject to genocide, children getting abused and exploited are in need of services this weekend, as they will be getting a busy signal when they pray

Don't see one listed for a Funduro either, but...

From: f650.com

GS Shock on Funduro


My wife's 2000 Funduro's Mono-Shock Showa B011 sprung a leak and needed replacing. At $650-$1100 for a stock replacement or after market, well, I decided to look for a cheaper alternative. What I found was a 2001 F650-GS 7 650 206 SHOWA B019 Mono-Shock with 2050 Miles.
  1. I measured the mountings center-to-center and found they were the same.
  2. The spring diameter and coils were the same as well.
  3. The Pre-Load Adjustment/Knob is the same and mount lines up correctly after removing the additional bracket the GS uses.
  4. The Pre Load Adjusters hose is longer on the GS than the Funduro. I routed it in front of the mounting bracket and it works fine. Clearing excess from touching the exhaust pipes.
  5. The Rebound Damping ( Little screw at bottom of shock) is now on the right side of the bike and not the left as original. This allows for easier access when on the side stand.
  6. All bolts that came with the GS shock were an exact match with the Funduro's bolts
  7. The new shock was slightly firmer at the same settings of the Funduro shock, but can be adjusted softer if needed.
  8. The ride heights are the same, but, sags less over all.
  9. The ride was better with the GS than the Funduro Shock. Clikel

Totally agree, and people look at the $$ all wrong, you really just lease the shocks. I paid $1208 for the Ohlins/Fox shocks 9 years ago, I am selling the bike , so put OEM back on the bike, and will probably get close to $950 for them so the cost/mile is 1/2 cent. Add the servicing I have had done adds another $350 so total price of superior ride and handling is 1.2 cents/mile. Tires cost me 10 times that much.

And the great suspension has probably saved me a few trips to the chiropractor, might have saved me a bent rim or two, and due to superior handling may have even saved me from a crash, so I look at them as $$$ in the bank.

Dan, there is a guy here in Batavia, a former Suspension guy for Penske Racing, that has a small shop, servicing is about $80, incl oil, plus parts. The rear I was selling was seeping slightly and I did not want to just clean and sell it, and the upper eyelet bushing was worn out, he replaced the entire seal head, which included the seal, bushing and internal bumper, replaced the internal rebound valving, new piston rings, and floating piston seals, and the upper bushing for $130 incl the parts.

Is that a Jøtul?


Ohlins, Penske, etc... Pretty much suck on that bike unless you're only going to keep it on the pavement. Road bike shocks. If there were a PDS that would swap over from a KTM, that'd be the dealio for that F650.

My old XR shock was ruled, "unrebuildable" by a pro once. It was later rebuilt by Bruce Triplett. Turned out perfect too. Only reason I mentioned it.
