Need help identifying shocks

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 1975 XL125. The rear shocks don't appear to be original - based on other photos I've seen online. Can any of you identify these for me?

Thanks!

can't answer your question, but from what I can see it appears to be super clean. I would love to see larger pictures!

Is there a set screw or bolt on the back side? Looks to me that someone built an extension and put an OEM shock into it. Not a bad idea, wish I had thought of it myself.

Here's a link to some better photos. I'll be swapping out that front tire ASAP.

They measure approximately 14 1/2" or 13 3/4" from eyelet center to eyelet center. No, they're not blown - just curious as to what I have here.

There isn't a set screw on the back, but if it's an extension, the OEM seems to have been embedded in epoxy instead of manually fastened.

Thanks for your help!
