Does anyone have a measurement for the K5 1000 rear shock?

Looking around I see it as anywhere between 310mm and 340mm...I'm sure there's a definitive answer out there, though.

Where are you measuring and under what conditions? There's a spec for the spring length on 8-51 of the service manual.

I need it measured off the bike because I'm trying to find out if I want one.

Yes but from where to where on the shock? The spring length is one such measurement.
