Looks like 888 is the old version, and 931 is the current application for 2008-2011, 930 is for 2012 models. Product search - Íhlins Hope that helps.

hmmm I looked that up too but other than the application its hard to find out what is different internally. Sometimes they change a sticker and call it the MKII and set you back 2 grand. Just sayin

Buy from a reputable dealer, they will spring it for your weight and explain the differences.

Seems the new 931 has a new valve and piston.

Does anyone know if the 888 will fit a 2012? I've got a line on one for a good price and was wondering if there are any drawbacks.. The bike is used about 30% on track rest is mostly street.

The 2010 shock will fit a '12 but is 4mm longer so will increase the rear ride height
You can screw in the lower mount-although it will probably only shorten by about 2mm.
