    need help with shock size on 06 Heckler

    Hi,
    I have a large 06 Hecker with a Float-R rear shock that I need to replace.
    The SCB site FAQ says the Heckler shock is 8.5'x2.5" (216x63mm) but my measures 200mm (7.87") so I think they changed the Heckler spec since 06. And moreover I can't find the travel size anywhere on the shock.
    So does anybody know what shock travel I need ? 2.0", 2.25" ???
    Or where I can find the info ? (the SCB mail support is out until after Interbike...)

    Thanks in advance.

    You are THE MAN

    Hi AznRider,
    I was told by a friend I would get an answer immediately on the forum. I was a little skeptical.
    Thank you so much for helping, and so quickly.

    They originally were spec'd with the 7.785 x 2.00, then changed that spec later on to a 7.785 x 2.25 for a bit of extra travel. I've used both on my older Heckler (02, same design as yours), they both work fine.

    I still believe SC has the FOX Float R in a 7.875x2 in their online store for $99. I Put one on my 05 Heckler and it works great.
