    Yes the R6S has a different end on the bottom of the shock shaft. The R6S will not work.

      So, this one would fit, right? How is the price? Are there better deals out there?

        Right shock but if you hold out,you can get them closer to $50.

              Actually if you want a mod free install that is not the correct shock, You will need to modify the battery box for that shock.

                Well now I'm really confused; I thought an '08+ R6 shock would fit without any mods. What am I missing here?

                  That one worked for me.It is close but not contact.Is there a difference in year models that allow it to work?

                    Yep there is a diff and that Ebay shock is a 07 not a 08+. Take a look at the first pic in the first post and that will show you a 08+ R6 shock. Notice the two adjuster are missing and integrated into one on the 08+. That allows more clearance between the battery box and the shock on a pre.

                        Ok, I know this is an old thread, but where is the picture of the correct shock?? There is only one pic of a shock in this thread, and I dont know if that is the right one.

                              Really? I dont see any pic in the first post, I am wondering what people are seeing, its not there for me.
                              Ok, now I see it, you just edited the post?
                              I have been looking on ebay for one and the cheapest I see is $120 after shipping

                                There are quite a few groups of people buying up the clevis style shocks.GS500,Katana,Versys,Ninja 650R,and I am sure there are others.I regret trying to hold out for that >$50 R1 shock some have bragged about.
