Will a Busa shock fit on an SV?

I might be able to pick up a shock off a Busa for relatively cheap if this is possible.

The lenght is the same only the spring rate is much to high.

I think that you also need to cut the battery box.

Next time check the FAQ section first ;)

How does that Busa shock spring rate compare to that of a GSXR1000? I know the 1000 has a bigboy spring on it.

the busa shock is sprung super-heavy. I have a busa shock in my SV b/c I am 6'5' and 245 lbs. the busa shock works great for me.
