Hey guys, new to the forum...my rear shock is blown out and I just tried to bring it on ye plane and got denied. I only have about two weeks in the states and he I'm screwed wih a awesome bike and no rear shock:(. If you have a leads on how I can get my hands on one so I can send it off to get revalved and rebuilt...I would appreciate it.

Seems unusually tough to find a rear shock for the bike?

Are you positive that it's blown out? I bought my wrr new last year, and it's rear shock felt worn out. After a year of use it's no better, but  no worse. Need to stand and use my legs as a supplemental shock absorber. Otherwise it will bounce like an old 1970 Buick. OEM Wr250r/x shock is not all that hot. Revalved with gold valves it feels really good. I haven't done mine yet (spent all me moneys renovating bathroom) but have ridden one with gold valves. Feels like a proper, modern enduro bike. I bet with express shipping and a little pleading you could have yours done within the 2 week window. Travis @Go Race, Ian @Rider's Edge are two good places, but there are other good shops around too. Depending upon your weight and expectations, you may be able to get it acceptable by adjusting the clickers. Realize of course that they won't cause the type of dramatic change that you would see on a more expensively suspended dirt bike. After a professional revalve though, it will be totally different bike. Then of course you will need to do the forks as well, right?

I think I bought that one. I sorta bought it as a spare for when I send mine to go race. I think id be willing to sell it for what I paid for it if the OP sends me his shock so that I can have it rebuilt. Just throwing that out there...
