Sorry to beat a dead horse here, but the more I read the more confusing it gets.
Will a 2005 model 636 shock work on a 00' nekkid SV? I have a line on one and can use some sound advice.
What mods need to be done to the SV to fit it besides cutting the battery box? I have read most of the gazillion posts about the rear shock swap, but the links are not accessable to view photos or specifics about the 636 shock. Thanks again, BFOG

Yes it will fit. Yes you need to trim the battery box.

If using the Kwaka lower bolt you will need a couple of washers and will need to trim a couple of mm off the nut to centralise in/clear the dogbones. You will also need to sort out a way of re-fitting you battery or you could get one to suit an R1 that just slots right in (thinner than std one).
