I bought the bike and didn't notice the previous owner had taken the rear shocks off (worst oversight I ever made, kicking myself now). I want to put some shocks on it, but I'm not really sure what I need. Looking in the owner's manual and at the old parts on eBay, it looks like it's just a simple eye-to-eye shock, but most websites are saying their eye-to-eye shocks are not compatible.
How can I tell what shocks are compatible with my bike, and do I need anything else to put them on? Do I need to order bushings or anything else to install them? What length do I need? It looks like stock is 12.5", can I go up or down from that to raise or lower the bike?
Thanks in advance.
