07 rear shock

I was wondering if the newer model shocks or possibly zx10 shock would fit on my 07? thanks.

Fit isn't the issue.... Springs, and valving, are.

What are your plans for the bike?

How much do you weigh in your typical riding gear?

A random eBay shock is not likely to outperform your OEM shock. If it does that's blind luck.

Even a name brand fully adjustable aftermarket unit will perform better with a service, the right spring, and correct set up.

The most right answer will be having the suspension at both ends set up for how you will use the bike.

Whether that's with your shock or another, is up to you.

Just get the name brand aftermarket shock designed for your bike.
