I am looking to replace my Works Performance shock with a Progressive 465 series but I am getting conflicting information regarding the specific shock. For informational purposes, my 91 K100RS has paralever suspension and is a 16 valve engine. I am pretty sure the shock i need is a 465-1142 but I have also heard to get a 465-1101. As I understand, the standard suspension takes a -1101 but the paralever will take -1142. Anyone have experience with this? I have searched the forum but can't find a specific answer. Thanks! Steve

The 465 is only available in a one-inch shorter than stock configuration. The 1101 is for non-paralever. Progressive has no plans to make the 465 in the standard length. I think this is a shame; I've had a 420 on my K1 for years.
