I've seen a few posts about CBR and Daytona rear shocks on the Street Triple but no mention of the GSXR. Does anyone know if this would fit?
I don't know for sure, but if the Elka shock is close to the same total length and travel of the stock STD or "R" shock then there is a good chance it might fit. But likely not without some spacers, etc. After a quick look at Elka's site, it looks like the overall length of their shock for the SV and the Striple is the same. It does not indicate shock travel, but as they are the same overall length that's likely close. That's the good news. Now it just comes down to how different the widths of the mounting "hardware".
Modifications so far:
Axxiom valve kit, Traxxion spring kit
CBR600RR shock, Tail Tidy, Triumph bar end mirrors
FP Racing levers, -1 front sprocket, Gel seat insert.
