DRz Shock

Recommended Posts

My DRz has blown its rear shock, I bought a replacement off ebay but am being told by the mechanic it doesnt fit (too short).

Are DRz Shocks Universal i.e E / S and SM all interchange

Mines a 2000 E model BTW

they are all interchangable

E model shocks replaced the original S model shock in 02 I think

SM shock is the same a S (well local dealer told me it was same part number)

Perhaps it has been shortened professionally, to lower the bike

E, S and K models are all the same length wise, though the E got the high speed compression adjustment a few years before the S. 2003 and later both bikes use the same shock.

I believe the shock body is the same on the SM, with different spring. But I do not know for sure….

We know what you have as you posted.. What did the donor shock come off of?

the difference between the E and S in 00 and 01 was only the forks, i believe the shock was still the same wasnt it.

Is it possible the one you got off ebay came off a dr and not a drz? do they look the same?

My 01 s did not have the same shock as the newer bikes (blue nut) I picked one up off of ebay. I put an 05E shock on my 01s with no problems. :thumbsup:

This is a DRz shock, will this one fit, the spring is a different colour.

Looks right to me. Spring might be an aftermarket (my racetech spring is blue.)

Can you measure the length of the shock, so we could compare it to one fitted to a DRZ, just so you know whether it's the right length or not? Where in the UK are you?

Measurement of the white shock is 19 INCHES or 48-49CMs.

Is that close to any of you're shocks on you're bikes ?

Thanks again for this help guys.

The only difference is the high speed compression adjustment (blue nut) Same fitment, Same brand (Showa)

Jut measured the shock on my 08 sm, it's the same length as the one in the pic.
