Hi My name is Brian, I live in a small village in Wales U.K, I am trying to find out whether a Kawazaki ER6 05 -08 Rear shock would fit an XJ600n, I have tried sourcing the FZ6R 2009 shock but can't find one for love nor money in the U.K Same with the V Star650 and the Ninja 650R, can someone help me out please.

Hi Brian, Welcome to the forum :)
I'm pretty sure the ER6 is the same as the Ninja 650r, what I mean is the ER6 is called Ninja 650r in America
The FZ6R is XJ6 ( new diversion ) in the UK
And 650 V star is called 650 Drag star in the UK
These shocks do come up on ebay from time to time ya just gotta keep looking ;)
