06 shock on a 04...help...

....bought this Gen2 WP shock for my 04 Gen 1 and it dont fit!!!!

the preload adjuster hits the front of the swing arm hole and the reservoir hits the rear of the hole.

looks like the reservoir is aligned wrong?

any advice?

anyone got a pic of a WP on a Gen 2?

I'm not sure if this is the reason, but I'm pretty sure that it doesn't fit because the swingarms are different.

If you were to sell it to a forum member, what would you let it go for?

well, i am in the UK - so, that might be an issue?

Its the Competition version with hi + lo comp - retail 873. I paid 400 for it + shipping. Brand new, never used from a dealer. If i sell it, then i'd want my money back.

Think i might look into buying a 2nd hand Gen 2 swing arm - even then, its still WAY cheaper than getting a proper 04 model.

Mmmm - let me have a think about that....

As you've found out, the swingarms are different for 04 to 06. Anythng with a fixed piggy back like that will have troubles. If you go something like the Penske they can go between years as they have a remote resevoir. Double check with a WP tuner that it can't be modified / changes etc to suit the 04 before selling it anyway. The WP stuff is nice.

too much hassle to make it fit, so if anyone wants it - 400+shipping.

And dont forget, i am in the UK....
