    Don' think second hand is the ideal solution. You would be better of buying shocks new and there not that expensive on the Hagon site. I wouldn't buy a second hand shock you could end up with one worse than the one you have.

Have a look on the Hagon site, take a note of the part number and try eBay, breakers etc for a replacement. Good Luck !

How to tell if neck bearing on suzuki gsxr 750 slingshot needs replacement and or adjustment

I would start at the top of the front assembly and work down.The easiest way to check for a loose or damaged head stock bearing is to put the bike up on the centre stand,have someone push down on the rear taking all weight off the front tire, and push the tire assembly in and out.There should be absolutely no play in the wheel assembly or headstock. The drop may have backed the head stock nut off just enough to loosen the assembly. I would also check to make sure there isn't a slight bend in the front rim.Check the brake caliper for clearance and don't rule out the tire it might have damage you can't see.You may have even bent the front axle slightly.This might explain why you only feel it slowing down or turning.Good luck

Rear shock

You would probably be better off sending your failing unit to "Maxton" for a refurb, The biggest problem with finding a monoshock that is right for your bike is the coil and damping settings, not to mention the eye end fittings. Motorcycle monoshocks are designed to fit and work with a specific geometry of linkages. While you may find one the correct size, it may not work properly with the linage setup on your bike. And the only thing keeping your tyres on the road is the suspension. I hope this helps. If you do find one will you let me know please. When you are looking you will need to measure the mounting holes, the length of the unit and the width of the unit, if it is too fat it could catch in the very cramped area under the seat.

Hi there. To upgrade your old rear shock is a good idea, however very expensive. Makers like Koni, and Ohlins, will have a rear shock to fit your bike, but unless your willing to part with about $1000, then considermy second solution. Have your old rear shock re built, or re furbished, by a qualified suspension mechanic, for a fraction of the cost. It is also possible to customise, and taylor your old shocky to suit you. Example,shorten the spring?, add a spacer to stiffen it up a bit, less oil, or more oil?
I would look into a rebuild first, unless, like i say, you are prepared to spend about $1000 plus.
Anything you choose, will definately enhance your bike.
Good luck

GSXR 750 Slingshot wont rev past 5000rpm, with or without choke

I have seen this before a few things to do too make sure. First take the air filter out and shine a light use your fingers to move the slides up and down I suspect the springs that go on the slide is not seated in center you can tell from the slide going halfway and hanging up. Next, the boots on the slides only go on 1 way there is a notch on the carbs for them. I would guess this would fix you up if not we can get deeper into it with air-fuel mix screw settings.good luck
