The main difference between our all our 3 Tractive shocks for the G310GS is that they have the correct sag set, as the OEM shock sits down quite a bit, either loaded or unloaded, due to the very soft spring fitted. So even though our Low shock can vary between 10-35mm less seat height than stock(depending where the adjuster on the shock is set) I found the bike still leant over enough, but obviously not as much as with a standard, or our Level 2 shock. I agree that probably fitting a shorter R side stand would return it back to more like stock with the shorter shock fitted, or even just cut and weld the OEM side stand, as its steel and would be simple to do. I'll try and get pictures at our local dealer at the weekend of both GS and R models with the Low shocks fitted on their stands. Two different low shocks are needed for the GS and R versions, as the OEM shock lengths are 14mm different, due to the increased travel and seat height on the GS, but Tractive are making us them this week to try out for prospective customers at the dealer who are struggling with seat height on both models.
