Rear Shock

Will an ‘08 shock fit on a 2000 model KLR650? They look the same? Mine needs a rebuild, has no nitro which may need a new bladder. And how much oil and nitro does it hold if I rebuild? Thx

Yes it will fit but you'll need to use the '08 bottom bolt. Rebuilding can be done but it really isn't worth the time, effort and expense to rebuild the stock POS emulsion shock. I'd either swap in a functioning used shock or pony up for a decent replacement; The Cogent Adventure is my recommendation for those on a budget.
