I've got a 929 shock on mine. It's actually shorter from memory and I had to use the top shock mount from the 800 shock and fit and weld a longer bolt and use a spacer to give me the same ride height as the 800. The shock was certainly better than my oem shock but it had covered 120,000 miles so was well past its used by date.
