Is there a significant difference in these two shocks?
Would both work on my 89 11?

I need help desperately!
Hopefully someone here is a FOX guru.
It's the last thing I need to get my dead gixxer back on the road!

Thanks!
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">ok any fox shock listed for a 88-95 gsxr 750 or 89-98 gsxr 1100 will fit your bike.
You need to be concerned with two things primarly, spring rate, and ride height adjustability, fox will valve and spring the shock appropriately for your weight, but 2nd gen gixxers really benifit from some addtional; ride height

I run one on my 90 1100, that came off a 93 750. I just bought a new spring for it. The 750 spring was way to soft for my 1100 with a 4" over arm.
If that helps any.

Thanks guys!

That was the info I was lookin' for.
I can finally get the rear end back together and get it back on the road!

I'm hoping this Fox will be better than the WP shock on it now.

Yeah the 93-95 GSXR 750 shock would be the closest match for you. The spring rates are the same as the 89 GSXR 1100.
