I'm picking up my new-to-me '01 tomorrow. The owner said something about an Ohlins rear shock linkage- what exactly is it? I did some searching but didn't seem to come up with anything. Does it provide different leverage than the stock linkage?

Never heard of it, and am skeptical that it exists.

A shorter set of dogbones will raise the rear of the bike and increase the effective spring rate, but I seem to recall reading about some oddities.

Some of us who have been here for a while remember why they were cut off from this forum.

You may want to dig into the bowels of this forum and search why SVRS is no longer welcome here. It is not pretty.

Not quite the answer I was hoping for- but a good one nonetheless. Should I be on the lookout for some stock shock linkages?

Im guessing its stock linkage with either stock dogbones or 1" raising bones.

Picked it up last night, but forgot to snap a pic of the linkage. (Sorry for the blurry pic). I'll take a picture when I'm free later.

Could have at least got angle from back so we could see shock.

I know, I know- I'll get that to you soon. I'm 99% sure that it's the stock rear shock though. (yellow spring, no reservoir, etc.)

That was my thought too... While I don't appreciate being misled that way, it doesn't really affect my thoughts about the bike. Still a good deal. Everything else that he told me was on there I have verified myself, so no more surprises.

Thanks for lending your expertise

He might have been lied to as well.
