I had a request to make a set of dog bones for a 250. I never had one so I don't know what they are (Exactlly). I see by the picture on the micro finch that they look like the 500 1st gen ones, maybe even the same ones. Does anybody know. or can I borrow a 250 one from sombody to copy?

FOG-that request came from me! I'm looking to aquire another Ebay set so I don't have to have downtime on my bike while you look at it. Some EX250 riders have just cut and rewelded the stock one, but I want to avoid it.
Quite a few EX250 riders have gone and used the late 80's ZX600 rear shock as an upgrade (including me) but it's a hair shorter than stock, lowering the rear end a bit. Once weighted, the height difference isn't MUCH, as there's less sag than stock.
Another bolt-on rear shock is the EX500 shock (which brough me to this site) but the word is that the spring is actually softer than the EX250 but had adj. preload (which the EX250 stock shock does not).
