A SHOCK WANTED IN MEXICO - 2005 F650GS REAR SHOCK (lowered version)

Dear All,

We are currently in Mexico riding between Ushuaia and Vancouver and my wifes rear shock has just given up the ghost!

We are now in the market for a new replacement shock (F650GS 2005 - lowered) she isn't the tallest and she will prefer the lowered version so will consider a used / take off if available.

FOR VEHICLES WITH LOWERING (CODE: X499A)
PART NUMBERS - 33537668653 was superseded by 33537728375.

Any ideas? Availability? Ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Where are you in Mexico? You might try contacting a BMW dealer but I feel your best option is getting one from the States.
If you need help contact me. If you want to visit Mex City contact me also.
