    Installed last night and ran into an unexpected fitment issue. The location of this bracket will not work with Jesse rack. The right side rack has a lower connection point that attaches to the rider foot peg bracket at about the same point.

    For now I'm doing some creative zip tying.:D
    Stay tuned for the final solution.

    unfortunately my own still sits as a project unfinished. Getting closer....

    It looks like they only make shocks for the 99 superduke and the 990R.

    WOW that was quick. I guess it is faster when as we get to the end of riding season for most folks.

    Report back how you like it once installed. :freaky

    Well, glad you asked!!!!!

    My 2 month old "13" 800GS has the worst rear end manners on the course gravel roads that I ride of any bike I've owned. Downright Scary!!!
    If I get it right for that, I'll be fine with tarmac ride, cause I've had dirt bikes, and dual sports for over 40 years.

    Please set me up on the group buy!
    I suppose they spring for me?!?!

    On the front, I'm going to try proper spring rate before dropping $ on dampening tricks. See what that does for me. (IT'S WAY UNDER SPRUNG)

    Thank You Gangplank

    Sounds like 2 want shocks for the 2013. Is it the same as the 2012 or a different shock part? Looking at the Elka site they make it for the 2008-2012. If they are the same I'll send you the order info by PM. :D:evil
