    So jengel, you put the Indy kit with your wilbers? I am very interested in either the wilbers or touratech rear shock on my 2013, but when I do this, I want to ensure that the the shock bolt does not bend. It appears we 2013 guys have no choices now that Indy stopped making it and the rally moto brace does not fit the 2013.

    Does anyone know if that bolt is torque to yield? That might explain a bent bolt after changing the shock.

    Honestly, I just did it because of all the noise about it, but now that I've been riding it and have yet to bottom it out, i'm sort of thinking it wasn't needed. Just anecdotal gut feeling at best.

    Nice. I've been waiting for you to beta test the wilbers for me, and you have not complained yet. I'm thinking that at half price, I may go for it and order the ralle moto shock bolt (no brace) and hyperpro springs and oil for the front. I am not hard core enough to pay the 2000 to konflict.
