    Hey Everyone, I have a 2009 F800GS and my rear shock blew all out over the swingarm and I'm 400mi into a 2000mi road trip.
    Luckily have a few down days, and there's a fellow ADV'er who has a shock takeoff from his 2016 F800GSA. (with esa)
    Will it fit my 2009? I know I won't get ESA stuff.
    I don't wanna wait a week for Öhlins, and don't really wanna spend 1k+ for a new shock at the moment.

    TIA!
