    Penske rear shock, XB $850 shipped.

    Used two weekends by Walt Sipp, pretty much like new. Penske sells them for $1200-1300.

    Thats a fair price,

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Buell-1125-o...RYihqs&vxp=mtr

    This shock was built and used 1 time at Daytona on Michael Barnes EBR1190RS and won the race including hitting a top speed of 208 MPH on the track. This is the best shock you can buy for any Buell 1125 or EBR 1190 motorcycles.

    Not 100% sure, I would assume most though. The exception would be Uly's or the long models. I'll get the eye to eye measurement tonight (assuming I don't forget to do it) and post it up. I *think* it's 365 mm though.

    Bump, forgot to get the measurement, it's 14.25" roughly. That comes out to about 362 mm, keep in mind it *is* adjustable for height, but not enough to put it on an 1125 or 1190. Should fit any year XB except the long (SS?) or Uly models. I called Penske, converting it to an 1125/1190 shock is cost prohibitive ($900+ to do it) so this one needs to go. Make me an offer. Yes, this is the 8987 triple clicker version.

    Just in case anyone's looking for it again, here are the various rear shock lengths for XB models according to various posts on Badweb:

    Eye-to-eye shock lengths for various XB rear shocks:

    SS - 13.625
    S - 14.0
    XT- 14.0
    STT - 14.25
    X - 15.0

    This means the shock I have would probably work on an S, XT or SST model. Also, price dropped to $750
