    Is that a 2017 with ESA?

    How does it affect the ride modes?

    its a 15, with (had) ESA and Rider Modes

    shock has no interaction with rider modes, ESA is completely seperate system so it has no effect on modes.

    you just unplug the shock electronics and seal up the plug, if you push the ESA button it just cycles through the settings on the dash like it thinks a shock is there, you get no errors/lights on dash because shock isnt there.

    That makes sense. I’ll disconnect the shock connector and verify the 2017 is the same. Tech at Wunderlich said their would be an error in the display. Curious and will check it out when I get back to the shop

    Did you buy the BM303 Shock por your 2017 F800GS? I looked it up in Ohlins website and it doesn't say it fits.
