My 2005 XT225 rear shock leaked all over my garage floor . So far having a hard time finding a replacement. Anybody have any laying around, or a lead on a good place to get an aftermarket? I have searched through the forums a bit, and found some older threads, but so far lots of dead ends. Hoping someone has some more recent experience they can share. The U type clevis on one end is making it hard to find an aftermarket, everything with that attachment has an external reservoir that won't fit on the bike.

TIA.

The price of those sure has gone up. I think Race Tech may do a rebuild of the stock shock. Worx Performance has them... http://worxshocks.com/html/street.html

812 Suspension in Austin, Texas may be able to fix/tune the shock you have. Do a quick web search and you'll get their info. Give them a call and see if they can help. RaceTech can do the same thing I'm sure. Both shops can make you suspension better than new.

I have a rear shock I'll sell, but I haven't torn the bike down yet. If you're willing to wait a bit, I'll give you a good deal on it....

I'm waiting delivery of a shock that may change the game for all of us XT225 riders.

My rear was blown out too, and I didn't want to spend $700 for a new shock. I did a ton of homework and found one that I think is going to work well. It's a common-ish shock and good used ones are <$100 .

Expected Delivery is Dec 2, so within a few days of that I hope to have it installed...

I'll let you all know what it is if it works out..I don't want to get hopes up only to have it be a bummer.
