    REAR shock compatible with NC25 (bros 400)

    It's about time I change my stock rear shock absorver (sowa with red spring ). Not interested in something new .I asked an Ohlins dealer and told me about 750 euros (about 900 $).I suppose the little Bros uses the same rear shock, can anybody tell me for sure from which other models I could use a used rear that fits right without any mods ?

    Well if you cant afford the Ohlins then you could always get a brand new direct replacement from Hagon shocks in the UK
    http://www.hagon-shocks.co.uk/HagMono.htm
    NT650 Hawk/GT /Bros 1988 650 Part no M61064 255

    or get a progressive 420 shock from JD Hord
    http://hordpower.com/index.php?main_...dex&cPath=1_28
    $350

    Now here is a question, the Ohlins shock for the Hawk/Bros is
    part no 46 HRCL. On the Ohlins site that part no fits:-

    Honda Bros
    Honda CB 600F Hornet
    Honda CBR 150
    Honda CBR 900 RR
    Honda Hawk
    Honda NSR 250 R / RK
    Honda NSR 250 R-SE
    Honda NSR 250 R-SP
    Kawasaki KSR 110
    Kawasaki ZXR 400
    Suzuki GSX 750 R
    Suzuki GSX 750 R W
    Suzuki RGV 250
    Suzuki SV 650
    Yamaha FZ6
    Yamaha SRX 400
    Yamaha SRX 600
    Yamaha YZF 1000

    So if Ohlins make a replacement shock for the above bikes could you
    use a shock from the above to fit the Hawk ??

      If I were you I'd go with the Wilbers shock. I had one made and it works great (Oh and by the way most everything for the Hawk will work with the Bros).

        The 46hrcl is the type of shock, HO 847 is the hawk specific part number from Ohlins 46mm piston diameter, H= high pressure gas, R= rebound dampening adjustment, C=compression dampening, L=length adjustable,

        From here the shock is specifically built for the application, fitment, dampening rates, spring rate, etc.

          Thanks for the info JR .

          I asked in an Ohlins dealership here in athens and the set shock / spring is about 750 Euros (new) . I love my bike but at the moment other needs have priority .I was thinking of bying a used Bros 650 shock from a friend that had been revalved (???) some years ago .He told me that it has a fine White Power progressive spring .What worries me is that this set belonged to a friend of his who died on his Bros 650 some years ago after a terrinble crash and has been unused ever since . So I suppose I should change oil and o rings if I decide to buy it . I think he 'll let it go for less than a 100 euros .

          But would you use parts from such a killer bike ??? I know it's not the bike's fault but I feel a little strange though .

            -Depends on your piont of view, I guess. Also how superstitious you may be. Personally, I would look at it like i'm giving the parts a second chance to do their job they were made for, but thats just me.

            The rear shock, being buried righ in the inside middle of the motorcycle would be very well protected in almost any crash situation. (except total disentigration of the frame) The shock should be very useable.
