So what I'm after is anyone with a aftermarket rear shock could you measure the width of shock spring please ?

I will keep updateing this first post as now measurements are post
I think it would be a good bit of info for anyone doing a conversion either exhaust or swing arm .
Thanks for your particapance :thumbup:

Standard ----- --80mm
White power--- 85mm
Hagon-----------73mm
Nitron------------85mm
Ohlins---==--- 83mm
Penske ------- --82mm
And any others
Bang on with the WP measurement, what side have you got your remote fitted too pls?
