130mm dogbones will work fine, it was one of the length options of my four length Projection Components dogbones.  I think the 127s gave a very slight tail-end lift, whereas 130mm should be more like the standard height.

Awesome, just bought the 130mm ones so I'll let you know how I get on  :D


I bought some generic top hat spacers on ebay for a few quid, but I think they're 1mm too wide as the shock won't fit in so need to file them down 1mm each.  :'(

Finally found the pictures to update.   2C0 shocks just require a tiny bit of filing on top - stops it fouling the top frame brace.


 


Those shocks don't fit as many other bikes, so there might be some bargains out there...

Gday lads, just joined up here and just purchased a 98 Fazer 600 a couple of weeks ago.
Purchased an 08 R6 shock to install, but don’t have any of the other stuff (new dogbones, the top spacers, heavier spring).
Does anyone have any of this for sale, or know any good sources to supply them?
Cheers!

Thanks MM.
Here’s a curiosity for anyone - would this R6 adapter negate the need for new dogbones:

As the R6 shock is only 10mm too short I don’t think that adaptor would sort the problem, you couldn’t have the two mounting holes that close to each other.

Also the top bolt looks to have three washers is this normal.
The length is 90mm long, is this long can anyone say how much thread will stick out of the locknut.


If its too long what length shorter bolt do i need to buy....

The dogbones that came with the shock are 127mm centres, how much does this lift the rear....
I would like the rear to be std.
So where can I buy the 130mm dogbones...

Help required.
can someone tell me what the bolt size or sizes are for the suspension linkage.
2x for dogbones I assume they are same length.
2x for shock attachment M10x???mm (what length some say 75mm) top bolt for R6 shock I assume the bottom bolt is the same as std bolt.



The std dog bone bolts measure as 130mm long, the dogbones i have for the R6 shock are (127mm) these are 8mm thick.
Std dog bones are 6mm thick so is there enough extra on the std 130mm bolts to take the 8mm dog bones.
Or do I need to buy a couple of bolts 135mm long, if so what M size are the bolts.

MM - did you get a spacer made up or acquired one from somewhere? I'm getting unfeasible quotes of £75 + from CNC places

The spacer came with the shock already fitted. Sorry to be no help.

Thought I would give people a  :lol  and add to this topic. Got all the upgrade parts but not the spacer - quotes for this ranged from £87 - £165 for a basic bit of drilling an aluminium billet! So got a billet from evilbay (£4) used a hole saw to cut centre and axle grinder and file to reduce diameter and shape a lip to fit preload adjuster.
What a unsightly monster it is but .....works perfectly  :) :)
