Sounds like you already know  grin  how much do you want for it then? I have an Ohlins for the 1990 250 already and will be refurbishing so be I could use the lower part from mine on it!

IF the lower fork fits/ overall length{eye to eye} would have to be the same/ 10mm on shock lenght equals 30mm ride height

Does anybody know why Ohlins cut the edges off these shocks? I have seen two exactly the same but am pretty sure it would clear the air box if left alone!

The  nitrogen bladder sit lower on the kx500{pre89250} The exhaust  stinger runs above it not on the underside like your bike
Cant see that shock fitting your bike
