spring rate?

I will add that the easiest conversion of all would be to do the R swinger with only the R/H bracketry and a bitubo on the SOAS lnikage.

.
wonder whats the length on this shock and what length stroke it uses

been thinking of mounting the buell shock in the right hand side to see if it will work with an s swinger before i convert fully to a different swing arm

Since you got your shit together I have a deal for you. I have a Sachs rear shock off a 2001 RSV if you can make it fit a TLR I will make it more than worth your time.

I had a rsv shock that I considered for my conversion. it is essentially too long. to fit it would require cutting into the swingarm and recessing the lower mount , then sleeving thru the arm to be able to bolt it thru. Also the reservior is a problem as it runs at a right angle and would need to be cut off and converted to a remote as it would foul the frame.

sorry :thumbdown

I am after a bit of advise I have just put a busa front end on the front of my tls . I have taken the swingarm, shock, damper and the back half of the exhaust off my bike . I wanted to put a Honda cb900 hornet rear shock on the back of my bike with my tlr swingarm , but don't wanted to cut into the battery box or move the battery . I would like to put the shock in the middle could someone tell me what would be the best shock to use, as I intend to use the tls exhaust, and is there a kit to put the shock on the back of my bike any advise would be very grateful received thanks

I am sorry if I have upset you as I have just finished putting my tlr swingarm in my tls and had to take 1/16 off of both sides of the frame . As I looked on 2 web sites and they both say that u should use the bearing dust cover on the chain side ,and now that I have got it in have only got 10 inches for a rear shock . I was only asking for advice I do apologise im hardly ever on this site as im trying to do my bike at the moment . im sure we have all asked stupid questions on this forum site at some time in the past . Please accept my apologies .

you are probably right I just feel that if I upset anybody on this site then they wont help u when I need answers to questions . Now I have got that out of the way do any of u no of a shock that will go in the centre of my tlr swingarm , without me cutting in to the battery box to much as I have set the swingarm at 15 inches from the subframe apart from a tlr ohlins as I cant afford one of them . Any help would be much appreciated many thanks

,you can probably use a 04-04 r1 shock, upside down
A cbr600 shock from a steel frame. Bike
Or you could.look at a Ducati 748/916 or 749/999
You'd need to check the length beforehand, to see if it's around 295mm
Then contact adstl and ask him about the Ducati shock brackets for a tls,

std R1 mod brackets wont work......

you need a shock with a 1100lb spring and a suitable length .

then you make brackets to suit that clear the spring

ok thanks for the advise I have managed to find an R1 04 shock for 50 pound , and a ducati 999 showa shock for 100 pound . Which one is the better one to buy and get ,and then have it serviced with a 1100 lbs spring put on it am not to bothered about making the brackets up , or getting them of adstl . Does the shock need to be as upright as possible or will it b ok at the angle where the rotary damper used to be would be grateful for the advise in the right direction many thanks

the springing rate changes depending on the angle of the shock

mount it however you like.........

use what ever shock you like , if you are getting either serviced and resprung you can have them tailored to your needs

BTW you have now changed the alignment of the rear wheel and sprocket by shaving the frame.....( R arm fits right in with dust cap on lhs only ) expect the chain and sprocket to show side thrust wear.
