Looks like they are developing it now, and it's not quite ready for release. This is very good though! Hopefully it will be available here, and at a decent price. It looks like it will be at least $1000, though. I wish we could just buy a decent shock for these bikes. I am getting close to sending mine out to GO RACE, as I'm tiring of riding a pogo stick. The forks, while not the greatest, are a hell of a lot more serviceable than the thing they call a shock.

I remember a while back reading that Elka was willing to do a custom shock for our bikes if we could get enough people interested in purchasing them. From what I remember the shock would be around$650 and they needed 10-12 people to commit. I think this would be a much better shock than re-valving the stocker. Does anyone else remember this?

I remember seeing this and I could not find it in the US. So I emailed the US Distributor and he told me that Ohlins did not have a shock for the WR250R.

Hi,
Indeed Ohlins doesn't produce a rear-shock for the WRR/X "per-se". (unfortunately. cos they do make one for the DRZ & for the CRF-L... but not for the WRR).
*BTW: Dan Kyle (dan@kyleusa.com) from "Kyle Racing" is THE person to speak with regarding Ohlins items in the U.S*

only Hyperpro produce an "official" aftermarket rear shock for the Yamaha WRR/X, that is in their catalogue.

BUT there are some licensed Ohlins distributers & workshops, all around the world, that will build you a custom-made Ohlins rear shock (based on the Ohlins S46PR1C2 model, or the S46PR1C1 model).

For example:

*"G Sense" from Japan (they have built an Ohlins rear shock for the WRR a few years ago (for a specific "made to order" reservation), and ever since it is on their regular "List of products".)
http://gsense.jp/addmore/whatsnew/16961
http://japan.webike.net/products/21840719.html

*"Rooske" from Holland (very famous licensed Ohlins workshop & distributer in Europe. known for building custom-made Ohlins suspension products)
http://www.ohlins-rooske.nl/index.php?action=development

*"Fast bike industries" in the U.S

*"ÖHLINS FRANCE" - the exclusive distributor of the ÖHLINS brand in France (company also known as "PFP Racing")
http://ohlins.fr/
http://ohlins.fr/wp/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Catalogue-OHLINS-Moto-Quad-2013.pdf
They are building (under the licence & in collaboration with the main Ohlins factory in Sweden) custom-made Ohlins suspension products for dozens of different motorcycles...
including for the Yamaha WR250R & for the Yamaha WR250X: Part # YA 8820 PFP (the PFP suffix indicate that this item is custom-made by PFP-Ohlins France... and it is not part of the regular Ohlins product lineup).
http://ohlins.fr/produits/moto/amortisseur-moto-yamaha-wr-250-r-2008-2008-ya-8820-pfp.html

PFP ÖHLINS FRANCE has a lot of distributers & retailers all across France. some of them can offer international shipping.
http://ohlins.fr/instorepickup/index/index/
http://ohlins.fr/reseau-ohlins.html

retailers worthy of note:

"2@4"
https://www.2a4.fr/103216-amortisseur-ohlins-cross-s46pr1c2-yamaha-wr-250-r-2008-2008-3663469028625.html

"Motoblouz" & "Access-moto"
those are two different web-sites of the same French company: "Motoblouz".
http://www.motoblouz.com/vente-amortisseur-ohlins-arriere-20710.html
http://www.access-moto.com/amortisseur-ohlins-arriere-20710-p.html

Note:
If you are not an EU resident, when you purchase from a french store - you are entitled to French VAT reduction (~20% reduction in the final price),
and in addition French retailers & web-sites almost always are offering sales and coupon codes... so the total price can really get low.
the Ohlins shock that is in the photo above - is a "PFP S46PR1C2 Ohlins" rear shock (Part # YA8820PFP) that I have purchased from Motoblouz.com for a bit more than 700USD.

By the way, in the past, before Ohlins came up with their modern TTX shock system - this "S46PR1C2 type" was the main Ohlins shock for most of 250cc enduro & mx motorcycles:

(Of course all Ohlins shock - no matter where you buy from - will always be built to your weight and your personal specs).
