Rick built a custom shock for my '09 KLX250S using a KLX250SF shock as the basis. It works very well. I also had the first CD MOAB long travel shock for my '08 KLR. He does an great job, no matter what the specifications required might be. He's always up to a challenge and his custom service is second to none. You'll like this shock.
And again, the bike looks awesome! Well done!
