  1. Hi there, I just broke the rear shock on my bike and am hoping to upgrade, but don't want to spend 2000 dollars. Hoping to find something better than my old stock shock for well under 1000 bucks. Ideally a stock shock from a much newer 12GS. I'm a tall guy, 6'5, so I don't mind if the bike is taller. And I know that if I get a taller shock I might have some problems with the center stand and or kick stand, I am willing to cross those bridges when I get to them. I will also figure out what to do with the front end height after replacing the rear shock. So my questions are... 1. Are there any newer stock GS shocks that I absolutely should use? Shouldn't use? 2. Will a taller shock put undue stress on my axle U joints? I'm a big guy and ride my beast like a dirt bike when I'm off road. 3. What random tidbits of info or stories do you have about rear shocks on my bike? Any info helps. Thanks so much
