I cant find any info to prove they will or wont work. There is almost NOTHING available for 2017 with a part number, to compare to older bikes.

Anybody figured it out?

How old?

I researched the reverse question (new shock on old model) to see if I could ship a friend my '17 shock to use on his '09. It worked. The only small mod he had to make was to slightly enlarge the mounting holes for the remote preload adjuster.

However, I believe I read that Suzuki improved the shock and increased travel starting with the Gen2 models. So if you get a Gen1 shock it'll slightly lower your bike and ride crappier. Gen2 and Gen3 should be the same shock, except for perhaps different colors.

Double check all this. Going by memory, but I believe it's all true.
