Hello to anyone who stumbles upon this thread! I'm trying to source some information regarding a rear shock swap on my 2016 Specialized Stumpy fsr.

All I have done so far is confuse my self.. some guys say to purchase a yoke and go that route and others say I can find a shock (spring/air) that will plug and play so to speak, without a yoke.

I have done a bit of research and I'm turning to old reliable PB.

Any insight is much appreciated! Thanks

So, you need this one....

650b is what you are needing. I this on my Specialized, very simple solution to what they should have had to begin with.


You can kinda see it in this image.

I‘ll be getting that on order. Definitely too bad they don’t come set up with one already. So much easier that way.

Again, thanks for the help.

Definitely go for the yoke. I went down the infuriating path of trying to replace the rear shock on my 2017 FSR Camber a while back. It was a bit of a nightmare. At the time they didn't have an aftermarket yoke that I could get. I could only replace it with a specifically configured Float DPS. I ended up selling the bike. A new yoke should open up some doors to different options. Plus, the stumpy isn't quite so picky as a camber.

Thank you! I’ve been told I can measure eye to eye and replace? But It’s looking like the majority of advice has been geared more towards buying a new yoke and going that route.. it’s tough to get a yoke these days.

So, the question is do you want to do it right? Upgrade it (like I did) or just install "a" new shock. I cant imagine that there are no yokes shipping, I have received many packages from Europe in the past few weeks.
