Does anyone have experience with yacugar shocks. The way i'm reading the shock description it sounds like the rear has a length adjustment. I'm wondering if the adjustment would be an alternative solution to having a bit more separation between seat and pegs. Could be that the adjustment is normal and lower, but i'm hoping not.

Shock length will adjust seat to ground, but not seat to peg distance.

Give Ted a call at Ted Porter’s Beemer Shop. He’s the US importer and distributor. He’s a stand-up guy and you’ll learn more about shocks than you really need to know.

Like rOckrat already mentioned, longer shock doesn’t change the distance between seat and foot pegs, but it does help solving the too long side stand.

I put a set on my 2012 which I got from Ted at the Beemer Shop.

Made a world of difference, took the square edges off bumps, made the tires grip like the bike was on rails.

I opted for the triple valve rear.

Big difference.
