2007 4c8 rear shock to a 2005 5vy?
Hi – Has anybody fitted a 2007 4c8 rear shock to a 2005 5vy? I had a shim sent to me some time ago by a guy on here who made a few up for when he converted his but I wanted to know how much work is required to swap it out. Cheers
Answers ( No )
It can be done that’s what the shim is for and u can fit the shim on your bike without the 4c8 if I remember correctly
Is it really worth it?
It was free so worth it is really not the question I also got the same shim
A fully setup and adjusted 5VY shock would work the same. The forks are the same story, no point in switching to 4c8
Well the shim make the back end higher I do believe
All the shim is a stock r6 shim
And the 4c8 Shock is a direct bolt in. The shim isn’t needed
I was the guy that had the shims and I’ve done the swap, the 4c8 shock spring is stiffer and in has more adjustment
Ahhhh thank you for chiming in Steven I totally forgot who I got it from
No probs I still got a load somewhere if anyone needs one
