Which shock is this?

Hey all, on this new to me '88 750, I've been able to figure out that the shock isn't OEM. Does anyone know what bike this could have come off of? I'd like to know what it is, so I can attempt some sort of setup.

Thanks

I suppose if I had asked what does this shock come off of, you'd have answered "a motorcycle".

Thanks

Re: Which shock is this?

Is the fact that this shock is 40-odd mm longer than stock going to cause handling issues?

It certainly won't be a show bike. From what I've been reading, it looks like S1000rr shocks are the hot ticket. Seem to be cheap on the auction site, too.

s1000rr or gsx-r 1000 2007-2008 are the best and easy swap
