    Exactly.

    But back to the problem with the BMW shock bolt....

    This is a fascinating study of board dynamics.

    Are there any mods willing to pull chatter out of V-Strom specific threads, or is that part of the BMW value-add? :D

    If you've got a thread that's on track with excellent and timely technical advice, and it's being derailed by BMW/KLR/KTM yip-yap, shoot me a note.

    I changed the rear shock on my DL650 today for an Elka with external reservoir and adjustable rebound and compression damping.

    I can see why the V-Stroms are not experiencing this problem. The shock mounts to two very substantial cast tabs.
