worse than I thought


Any recommendations for replacing a monoshock on an XR200? Don't really need the spring, but a new shock might be a good idea, and some bearings... sigh...

I live in Canada, thus ebay shipping is stupid. Still, I can get a used rear shock off an '84 or so (supposedly the hot setup for my 2001 crap-suspension model) for roughly $200. Probably have to rebuild it though. New OEM is in the $600 range.

I remember reading I could get a "better" shock for my KLR, new, in the $350 range. Is there something weird about the XR, or am I just looking in all the wrong places? Or, am I just remembering wrong???

At $600, I'd be thinking about ordering some ground rod and rebuilding that non-rebuildable shock myself.
