YZF600R 95 model

  1. Hi guys,
    Friend of mine has a 95 yzf600r. he is a bit of a big boy and recently went over a bump and shocker popped.

    The bike is a bit of a war beast so he doesnt want to spend to much money on it but what he is after is a shocker that can be pretty much a direct replacement. For example a 2001 R6 shock might be compatible??

    Thanks guys.
  2. Wrecker would be first call with a question like that me thinks.
  3. yeah i called Vic Motorcycle wrecker and they said to bring it in and they can try and match something up. Im trying to see if anyone knows of a possible compatable shocker from another motorcycle.
  4. just curious, but did he bend his rim as well?
  5. No just the shock at the bottom where it connects to the frame snapped so he was still bouncing on the spring.
