Must be for noise requirements. Silly but at least it can be removed easily enough.

@oldmansan I pulled off the foam as close to the base as possible and then soaked the remaining parts in Maxima electrical contact cleaner and rubbed it off with a cloth. Entire process took a couple of hours.

Installed a manually adjustable Ohlins HO568 - revision 1 shock - there are some holes in the frame to allow access to the top shock bolt which has a torque of 34 N/m. Linkage and lower shock bolt are 44 N/m. It does not look like it will be very easy to adjust rebound/compression and/or remove the shock without removing the tank and subframe inner fender.

Started with 110 N/m spring with 11 mm or preload installed at stock length of 317 mm (stretched), 14 rebound and 12 compression

@D4rkside thx for sharing....this is a good idea :) The shock is difficult to remove only because the tank, tail section bodywork and inner fender need to be removed to gain access. I imagine, however, that the inner fender could be trimmed to eliminate this.

How did you remove the tail bodywork? I tried but couldnt remove the middle piece with the hole for key (seat) there are 2 weird Pins.
