The F650GS (and probably F700GS) shock is basically a shorter version of the F800GS with less stroke, both bikes have exactly the same frame and swingarm.

If you shorten the forks you can shorten the shock as well and keep the right geometry, as long as you reduce the stroke by an equal amount so that nothing bottoms out where it shouldn't.
