Shilo,

I ordered the R6 bushings from Economy Cycle. Installed the lower bushing for now and will probably install the top ones. I drilled out the stock R1 bushing but it is thin. There are similar bronze bushings at Ace Hardware. Right now I am waiting on Race Tech to see if they can re-valve this shock for the RZ. Ed

Agreed. Usually get my parts within 2 days from MC.

Only downside is shipping is usually about $15 minimum.

What part numbers did you use?

Does anyone know if this set-up will work with a VJ23 swingarm? I'm concerned with the reservoir tank hitting the swingarm given there is much more bulk around the axle bolt with the VJ23 than with the stock swingarm.

I had an R6 shock on my 350 and recently installed an RGV swingarm with a Penske shock. There is no way the R6 shock could have been used as the reservoir was nearly touching the swingarm. The reservoir position on this one looks similar enough that I would doubt it could be used, a remote reservoir shock like the RGV used is better for that application.
