83(?)XR200 shock parts and rebuild

Recommended Posts

Hi,

long story short we added an older 1983 xr200 shock and xt225 forks to our 2001 xr200r,  The setup worked great for years but the rear shock gave up the ghost last year.  We noticed that the dampening was gone and when we went to refill the nitrogen and pressed the schrader valve that shock oil was coming out.  Bad news, so it sounds like the N2 bladder has failed.  I can't seem to source any shock parts for the early hondas and nobody that i know will touch it (Sacramento CA area).  Does anybody know a local or not so local resource for these shocks?  I'd gladly ship it anywhere in the US as long as they could get the job done.  Thanks TT community!

I would recommend not spending any money on the '83 shock. Find a kyb unit that was used on the '84-'91, they have better parts availability and are nicer internally.
