KX250 rear shock interchangeability

Recommended Posts

Hi guys 

 

I have a 2001 Kx 250 with a blown rear shock.    It's been blown since I got the bike and it's got a few hours being ridden blown so I'm assuming the internals are probably smashed to smithereens.

 

I've been looking on eBay for a new rear shock but all I can find are either 90s kx shocks or kx 250F shocks.

My question is:

Will a kx 250F rear shock fit on my 2001 kx250?

 

Thanks

You can rebuild it to your liking for $100.  If you buy a used one, you will still be looking at a rebuild most likely.  The chances of having a shim stack that works for you is almost zero.

Did you find an alternative shock.  I"m helping a friend out with his 99 KX250  The shock is blown out.  I'd have it rebuilt but the shaft is also pitted  - the shock may just be a total loss.

Have you looked on eBay? There are several on there. I think the KX125 is the same shock in 1999 (and most 1992 - 2002??), just a lighter spring. Check part numbers online to make a better call.
