All mono shock absorbers cost EUR + 400, -
There are a lot of different mono shock absorbers, so there must be one that can be easily matched to an RD500?
Which could be the best bid?

Nitron are very popular. I have a YSS which is good for the money.

My '85 RZ500 has a Wibers rear shock with adjustable ride height. It came with the bike so I have no idea how it compares to the stock one.

I got my Ohlins through a group buy here years ago. I think they were purchased from Wim Kroon. No ride height adjuster though.
