    You probably already know this but the requirements for the rear shock on that bike are: 7.25" eye to eye with 1.75" stroke (aka: 184mm length x 44mm stroke).

    I've paid attention to this because I need a new shock on my 2012 also, though I've managed to get it into some mode where it kinda works (it was locked out and couldn't be unlocked, rebound knob jammed and lock/unlock moved but did nothing). I pulled the air can off but that accesses nothing as the issue for me is in the damping part (which is not easy to get into) and/or the linkage from the rebound knob to I'm just trying to ride it as-is until I have the money to buy something new.
