What are some replacement options for the rear shock on a '06 XB12ss Lightning Long? The rear shock on these motorcycles not being serviceable unfortunately means they have a finite life span, assuming conventional knowledge applies. I don't know if there are any aftermarket options for replacing the shock or if I have to go for a direct replacement. Also, will an '08-09 shock fit on an '06 model?

the later shock will work but is the same length as an STT and will raise your bike about an inch if you go that route I'm interested in the old one as I want to have one rebuilt and a grove cut for the hydraulic tensioner from a Uly to fit to drop my XT an inch in the rear so if it does not work I am not out too much (sending It to rebuild if the mod works)

Terry, when I bought my 06 Uly it had lightning long rear shock and forks. It does lower it. I put the Uly forks back on as it was too low for me. When I parked it next to my stock 09 Uly the tail light was about 3 inches lower.
