Does anyone know if a k1/k2 GSXR 1000 rear Shock will fit a K4 SV650?

Also found a k4 / k5 - which would be the better option ?

Any Info greatly appreciated

Thanks

depends on your wieght. gsx-r 1000 years 03-04 are better for those of us on the heavier end. thats what i have in my bike. i dunno how it feels as of yet because its winter here but most people will tell you any shock feels better than the stock sv650 shock. just from sitting on the bike the gsx-r shock feels stiffer. plus the gsx-r shock has more adjustability than the stock one. if your 175-225 i'd say go with a 03-04 gixxer 1000 shock.

So am I correct in stating that the 2nd gen SV rear shock and the 01-02 GSXR 1000 shock are sprung exactly the same? So would it really be worth it? I know there is more adjustability but I weigh 170 with gear on and it doesn't seem like it would be an improvement.
