    That's why I sold mine. It will run a long time if treated right.

    Thought I'd share some measurements for those that are looking for a rear shock. This is with an 18" ktm rear wheel and a Shinko 700, shock is off a honda cbr. Measurements are from centerline of eye or mounting bolt.

    <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="493"><col style="width: 152pt;" width="202"> <col style="width: 83pt;" width="110"> <col style="width: 136pt;" width="181"> <tbody><tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl24" style="height: 12.75pt; width: 152pt;" height="17" width="202">Condition</td> <td class="xl24" style="border-left: medium none; width: 83pt;" width="110">Shock length MM</td> <td class="xl24" style="border-left: medium none; width: 136pt;" width="181">Clearance to inner fender MM</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl25" style="height: 12.75pt; border-top: medium none;" height="17">both wheels in air shock in place</td> <td class="xl24" style="border-top: medium none; border-left: medium none;">306</td> <td class="xl24" style="border-top: medium none; border-left: medium none;">173</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl25" style="height: 12.75pt; border-top: medium none;" height="17">collpased no shock</td> <td class="xl24" style="border-top: medium none; border-left: medium none;">243</td> <td class="xl24" style="border-top: medium none; border-left: medium none;">0</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl25" style="height: 12.75pt; border-top: medium none;" height="17">max extension no shock</td> <td class="xl24" style="border-top: medium none; border-left: medium none;">350</td> <td class="xl24" style="border-top: medium none; border-left: medium none;">295</td> </tr> </tbody></table>
    Max extension is with stock muffler removed and 1/2 of the right stock muffler hanger removed.

    mine didn't break from dropping the bike, they fell off when that little 5mm stem failed from metal fatigue. both sides.

    you can see the little 5mm stem above the threaded section. i had to ziptie the mirror inside the handguard just to have at least one.

    he's the man. He did all the custom work on my build. Works like a charm. How much travel are you going to be able to pull out of the swingarm

    Sanjo, do you have any details on the shock. Like where are you getting it? Is it a bolt in (other than the muffler bracket mod)? What features does it have?

    Yah what model and year CBR? Also it looks like the chain would grind on the swing arm. Are you replacing the chain guard frequently?

    Yes bolt in but you will need to remove the stock muffler and part of the bracket that holds the muffler. Shock is fully customizable. No remote res.

    I think it is an 02. Swingarm guard is in good shape after 13k miles with the shock.

    Not yet, won't fit on the 650 as the racks I made are a bit too close. I was thinking about burying my dead cat in it:D or renting it out as garage space.

    Migitizing or Midgetizing? Just get a step ladder:huh I can see why you like the engine, just traded for a Futura:deal.

    Hope you are somewhere south and warm.
