  • I own the 465 for the lowered KLR. I'm thinking about removing my lowering links and returning to stock. Will I have any problems?
    Question by: Jon on 2018-08-15 00:58:00

    Everything will work just fine.

  • How do I account for spring rate on this shock ? What weight rider is it sprung for and is a typical metal pannier setup taken into account ? Is there enough adjust ability for me to get it tuned properly given luddage and a 200 pound rider or more ?
    Question by: Thomas Panozzo on 2017-10-06 03:10:00

    The Progressive spring will handle you if you are between 170 amd 300 pounds.

  • So if I have lowering links on my 2016 KLR, can I run the 1 inch lower progressive rear shock without having to modify my front end?
    Question by: Kaila Sullivan on 2017-06-19 22:54:00

    I am not sure what you mean by modify. The triple clamps will need to be reset.

  • Does anyone know if this shock will bolt on to the old generation KLR? I have heard that it does with use 2 extra washers. I have a 2000 with lowering links and a blown stock shock. The reason I ask is because the 465 for the gen II are more readily available and often cheaper.
    Question by: Martin on 2016-08-31 18:52:00

    The shock bolt is a different diameter, from the 87-07 to the 08+ KLR's.   Our shocks are the same price on both years $379.95, but yes you are correct they are more readily available but we do not suggest crossing the shocks from one bike to the other.  You will get alot more wear on the inside of that eye bolt.

  • i have my KLR 08 650 at my home in costa rica. i need to replace rear shock. was wondering if it is any more difficult to install the progressive 465 with 1" lowering than the regular version? also, does this shock require any sort of routine maintenance? i'm especially concerned if i need to add nitrogen gas etc routinely---as this might be very difficult to do in costa rica. thanks
    Question by: steve romagnoli on 2016-03-16 01:34:00

    The Progressive 465 1" lower is a very easy install on the KLR. The nice thing about the 465 series is that they are virtually trouble free, well built and dependable. We have ran them on KLR's and V Strom's with great success..
