Showa Shock on a 1983 Suzuki RM250 ? anyone ever heard of this?

Recommended Posts

I bought a 1983 Suzuki Rm250 ( full floater) and it had a strange looking shock on it... Turns out it looks exactly like a 1985 CR250R shock but instead of the clamp style mount the Honda has it has a Suzuki eye type mount on the shock. I never heard of this or thought it was possibly to mod a showa to fit a Suzuki.. Has anyone ever seen this before..

On a bike this old who knows what it has. But if it bolts on correctly are you sure that it's not the original shock or just a newer RM250 shock?

Try posting a picture of it, someone here might be able to ID it.

Thanks for the reply. I talked to a suspension guy and he said it is possible to take a showa shock off a CR and change the bottom mount to fit a Suzuki RM. It is definitely a 1985 Honda CR250R showa remote reservoir style shock. I know for a fact that1983 Suzuki RM250's had a problem with shocks breaking. So I could see someone doing this.
