Trasforming a standard into an R???

My mate bought a 990 R 2012 and got it as lower as the standard model. This was done by the dealer using original WP component. Now the original R rear springi&collar and the front springs are sitting lonley in his garage. Can I fit this to my standard 2008 model? The aim is to make mine as tall as the R/S model?

Thanks

Nic

The rear is changed with just the spacer so you could use that. The front needs more. You would need the internal cartridges and the spring guides for starters off the R model.

Just having the springs won't help you.

In the suspension section, there is a guy raising a 950, your 990 will be the same process.
