    Does any one know if Sasquatch suspension is still in business? I have been trying to get in contact for several weeks now and get no response. Is there anywhere else I can get a rear shock for my wife's 2009 F650GS rebuilt?

    I have used Bruno several years back (not for GS) but he did a good job for my LT rear shock.

    I don't know if this helps -- but I have a regular height shock that I took off my 2009 F650GS when I lowered it --I'd be happy to sell it if that would be less expensive than a rebuild! Has 3200 miles on it.

    Thanks but my wife's is the lowered version. Actually the shock is fine but the spring must be defective as it bottoms out with my 115lb wife and luggage on it with full preload.

    Are you sure it is set to full preload? How many revolutions can you turn the adjustment knob from stop to stop? GH

    Yes, it turns 21 full 360 degree revolutions. I've compared it to others at rallies and it is much softer than all the other lowered F650's and all the other's had less preload.
