Suspension swap question

Hey there guys, I tried using the search function, I was told the 04 1000 rear shock was swappable with my 06 750.

I obtained an Ohlins rear shock for an 04 1000 and looks like it should work, just curious what the thoughts were.

Re: Suspension swap question

As long as the bolt holes are the same diameter and your eye-to-eye length is similar, it shouldn't be a problem.

Re: Suspension swap question

It might need revalving and heavier spring because stock spring rates are:
K6 750 9.5kg/mm
K4 1000 8.6kg/mm
