Shock Absorber Riser Blocks (That retain the original rear foot pegs and exhaust hanger)

Postby Mr Jones » Thu Nov 21, 2019 7:23 pm

Hi Guys,

FYI, I've machined a pair of riser blocks that allows you to retain the original rear foot pegs and exhaust hanger. The rise is 60mm over original but as I'm going to fit a set of 340mm Ohlins it's right on the money. The current riser blocks offer 50mm rise on standard 355mm shocks. I've sent them off for power coating so will post some photos when I get them back and mounted. This design also retains the original angle between the shock and the swing arm which the current riser block do not (which makes the side loading on the rear shock worse).

Cheers, Lindsay
