Fox Shox site states a Float R with 6.5" ETE with 1.5" shaft travel for the 2005 NRS. I'm away from my bike, so I can't confirm.

6.5" Eye to eye 1.5" stroke

A word of caution though, 3 years ago sent my Fox Float R off of my NRS to PUSH industries for a rebuild. There was some confusion and delay in getting it turned due to the internals of the shock being slightly different. I don't recall exactly what the issue was but it would be worth some looking into before you purchase a new shock. Believe it had something to do with the zero sag setup of the NRS.

I believe the custom Float R on the NRS has a fixed pressure in the negative air chamber.

For this reason, maybe a Rock Shox Monarch with Dual Air would work well on the NRS. I have not tried it though, and am unsure of its availability right now.

In the past, there were positive reviews of using the Cane Creek shocks on the NRS.

I've got a Cane Creek Cloud 9 on my '03 NRS after the original RockShox gave up the ghost. I got it directly from CC, told em it was for my NRS and they sent me the correct size. Plus I got it at a discount on their upgrade program, $100 off if memory serves me.
It's completely user serviceable and I've done it it myself twice already.
