ohlins ho1480 shock thoughts

I found an ohlins ho1480 shock for sale. He is wanting $750, and doesn't know the history of the shock. My current thought is the ho204 from dan kyle isn't much more at that point and it's brand new and ready for my weight.

Any one else have some thoughts?

Right shock for the bike, for nearly the same price. I'd go with the HO204 myself.
Eliminates a lot of guesswork making a shock for another bike work on the RC51.

The HO1480 was throwing me off target.
the correct number is HO148, which was made for the SP1.
It was superceded by the HO204.
