additionally im worried it would be too stiff due to the difference in weight between the two bikes, just looking for something for daily rider on the street no serious offroad intended usage for the bike.

The 750 shocks are a bolt on.

I haven't ridden mine as you can see in the picture. Far from it.

But they do feel somewhat better.
