Did you (and he) make sure that the shock angle is as close to, if not identical to, stock as possible?

Those are the kinds of little things that people forget sometime.

I know a guy who fit a gixxer arm to a KZ, and he actually welded a plate and mounted the gixxer shock longitudinally paralell to the ground. Different shocks are made to take stresses in different positions... and a gixxer shock isn't made to do it that way.

Will it still work somewhat? Yeah, sure... but not to its full potential.

I've always been of the opinion that the engineers who build the bikes know more about the math behind everything than any of us ever will, so I try to keep it their way with things like that.

Anyhow, looks good.

Let me know if you need any small parts for the arm you have... I have a complete arm and some spares plus the shock/linkages that I was going to use, but not I've got an R1 setup instead.
