    Hi all, will the rear shock from a 2010 f650gs fit a 2000 f650gs?

    Thanks, it’s my first bike, I can’t wait to get the replacement shock in and start riding.

    Would it not be more accurate to say that the shock from a 2010 G650GS will fit a 2000 F650GS? In 2010 the F650GS was the twin cylinder bike and its shock is entirely different.

    You are correct. I just ran the part number search and never noticed the G650 in it.

    Thank you, I’m completely new to the BMW world and didn’t realise the 2010 was a twin cylinder. I have now found a place that should be able to rebuild mine. Fingers crossed they can fix it, I should know in a few days.
    Really appreciate the help.

    The f650 single became the g650 and new f650 twin was actually 800cc. It has caused so much confusion it makes me wonder about a company that would do such a thing.
