Rear Shock??

I have 2 questions....
The shock on the top is off my 2011 990 Adv. Dakar, the lower shock is off a 2005 Adv. ??. There is a 1 inch difference (3.5 vs 4.5") in the reservoir length between the two. There are NO other external differences.
Question 1 is, is the 2005 shock "stock" with the longer reservoir or has it been changed/upgraded ?
Question 2 is, are there any benefits other than more shock fade resistance?


Thanks, Al

Good question, the left looks way short.

Have a 2004 230mm suspension, 2005 S (would be 2005.5 for you US guys) 245mm, and a pyndon monster 320 mm:



Both the 230 and 245 seems to have the same length reservoir.

EDIT: hmm not sure if its a 2005 shock just looked up some about the brake lines that came from the same bike and the dual style seems to have come in 2006 had just been told it was from a 2005 but that might not be the case, was the 2006 S model also 245mm suspension?

No real advantage with the longer or shorter reservoir. Wonder if the chain was hitting and KTM shortened it?

Look closely at the shocks. There is usually a build date stamped on. I'll bet the early ones have the longer res.

No one with a 05 owns a ruler....

92cm seat height...so low :-)


The benefits from the longer should be more cooling as you got more area.

This may have ben asked/answered before and I did do a search.

Does the Adv shock fit into a SE, we are still looking for a solution for a quicker preload adjustment between riding full two up with house and contents and just me on board.

Any help would be appreciated by those in the know.
