does a xr400 rear shock fit on a 2000 xr650r? Are they the same or will require manipulation to make it work.

why am i doing this? i need a xr650 shock sooner than later and there's a xr400 rear shock on ebay.

Does not fit.
I'd bet you can find a 650R shock, lot of people swap the 650R shock for a cr shock

Try advrider.com also. That site is harder to find just XR650R stuff, but there are alot of people on there with alot of stuff to sell.

I think there are also a few CR500 forums. Might be something there...

Last, you might be able to call up some of the shops that do the CR500 shock conversion and see if they have a used XR650R shock laying around. Might get lucky. Big ones out here in California are Barnums Pro, XRsOnly, Precision Concepts.

Good luck!
