The spring slider thingy is "loose" ish in the travel + the rotary damper is moving on the splined shaft with/without body weight.... so's I guessed it's *gone*....

I hope I am not raining on anyones parade and I am sure someone will put my concerns to bed so here goes.

Firstly, If the bike was designed with a shock on one side of the swing arm and a damper on the other would this have been to balance any excessive loads and torque?

Secondly, would removing the damper and shock and installing this design of replacement, placing all loads and torque on one side of the swingarm, possibly cause a failure in some structural point?

Thirdly, Many of the other replacement systems seem to retain attachments on both sides of the arm, do they know something we don't?

I've mentioned that before in one of the millions of shock threads but Uncle Bern politely disagreed. And I agreed to his disagreement. Don't you agree?:banana

2000 TL1000S suspension

Hello everybody. I recently purchased a 2000 TL1000S with 9000 miles on it and am looking for advise on upgrading the rear suspension. Bitubo, Penske/Lindeman and Öhlins have surfaced in internet searches, but exclusively for older models. Which one do y'all recommend and where would y'all recommend I order it? Thanks in advance.
