Gen 4 to Gen 5 shock linkage swap
Hey ZX10R community. Sounds like this question may have already been answered, and looking to confirm/clarify.
It appears from what I've seen is that the linkage on the Gen 5 provides a more linear travel. And that the Gen 5 link plates will swap over to a Gen 4 with some add'l mods needed.
I'd like to run the Gen 5 link plates on my Gen 4, and use my Ohlins TTX shock that is currently on it. What will I need to do in addition to swapping the link plates?
Shorten the shock and by how much?
Any re-valving of the shock needed?
Any spring rate change needed? (currently sprung for 150 lbs.)
Does the dog bone also need to be swapped to the Gen 6 or are they the same?
Any other mods needed?
Has anyone made the swap and how is it working out?
Thank you everyone for providing feedback.
