If you haven't already, post this on a BMW website. Those guys have little issue spending money on aftermarket shocks.

Then we pick up the pieces.

John,
Here's the original thread:http://fz1oa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=121131

Looks like pre 2012 is what the op used. Pretty sure that is what mine is as it did raise the rear of the bike a touch.

The 2012 to 2014 are the ones to have. Slightly larger in diameter piston, and only slightly longer body length. One can run the o.e.m. dog bones, and doing so will raise the rear of the bike, only about 3/8". Thats what I have on my 2002 FZ1. On my 2001 FZ1, we have a freshly rebuilt, Penske 8900 shock.

Dean

P.S. When i said o.e.m. dog bones, I meant of course, our gen.1 FZ1 dog bones. Do keep in mind the top and bottom mounting holes of the S1000RR shocks, have to be drilled out to 12 m.m., as they are 10 m.m., from the Sachs factory.
