GSX-R 750 shock reservoir clearance.

No cutting needed. Shock clears the plastic that covers the wire/s. It’s a tight , but it fits without cutting. Here’s the pics.

Interesting.  Is the shock length contracted and extended the same?  Hiw do the spring rates compare?

Can I just ask WHY?
What sort of riding do you do ? road or off road?
What expectation did you have and is it worth it?
cheers buddy

The Gsxr shock is a _MUCH_ better one. It has real good and consistent damping, four way adjustable (slow and fast compression, rebound and spring preload), and add a about 10mm more height and travel compared to stock.
Only negative is that because of the reservoir setup of the shock, it only fits non-ABS bikes.

It's too bad that we can't find a replacement for the CB rear shock from another bike for the 2019 and 20.  On my previous NC750X I was running a Aprilia rear shock with a custom spring and it worked very well.
