When I got my shock it came with the yamaha linkage. I swapped the bearing insert from the yamaha linkage into the katana bearing and used the yamaha bolt.

I would keep the 750 shock and have it rebuilt. Here is TMODs web site. It is the most reliable way to reach him. http://norwestsuspension.com/
