GSXR 1100 95 rear shock

Hi i got the bikehome last sunday 6th march. the bike has been standing for 4 years fortunately the previous owner had the sense to drain carbs and turn off tap. i put new battery on and cleaned tank added fresh petrol and without too much effort she started. the rear shock is completely gone and front fork seals are leaking and brakes are shot. can any one help out with the rear shock and what others might fit without me having too much shock on the price thanks guys.

We realize you just checked in with us so don't take this the wrong way.

A lot of the questions asked are repeat events and while we truly enjoy the banter, try using the 'Search' function you see at the top of the Forum page. Use 'Advanced search' and select key words like "rear shock" and then limit your search to the Water-Cooled Forum. This way you can do a little homework in advance, perhaps find what you're after, and save the really skill-testing questions for us to ponder!!

A shock from a 05 or 06 gsxr 1000 will also fit. That is what I installed on my bike a couple weeks ago. It will raise the back of the bike about 10mm though. Its not very noticeable. I got mine off ebay for $40 shipped

ALL the Suz shocks 'fit'. It depends on how much of a ride lift you'll tolerate for a higher spring rate. I put a '02 'Busa shock on my '98 1100 and had about 1/2" rear ride height increase. However, it's tolerable for the increase to a 13kg spring rate at my 270lbs.

This is a slippery slope as technically we will get slapped if we sell outside of the classifieds. I will ist it there.

Re: GSXR 1100 95 rear shock

If you want a brand new rear shock manufactured for your rider weight and riding type then look into a Nitron Sport Monoshock. It's from the U.K, but ends up being roughly $480 USD. I got one of those, but had money to burn. They also have more expensive track and full on race shocks for our bikes with remote reservoirs and twist adjustable hydraulic pre-load adjusters, but the fully tricked out shock runs around $1200.

The above is where I got the Nitron shock for my bike, but with the black spring option instead of teal blue. I posted the link for your year and model. They do offer other brands as well, but they aren't custom designed for rider weight.
