Yet another rear suspension question.

I like the bike now, i don't want to change anything except the ride quality.
Looking around and found this AMMORTIZZATORE OHLINS S46DR1S MOTO GUZZI NORGE 1200 2010 10.

All i need to know is, will it fit straight up to my 1100 GRiSO & will i get a better ride?

If as suggested i get something 15mm longer, what would i get that bolts straight up with the same features as this unit?

cheers Terry

First of all, I don’t know this shock or cross figment with the Norge. From what I recall the GRiSO sits low at the rear, and an increase in rear shock length would speed up the steering, 5-10mm ok unsure about 15mm.

Worth a try to enquire with your Ohlins service centre. They may be able to change the length of the shock??

If this is a load of bollx, someone will step in to correct me.

Finally the stars have aligned, and Maxton have my new shock.  They will replace the bottom eye with a Clevis, then increase its total length by +8mm over the OEM of 321mm, giving a length of 329mm.

From calculations elsewhere in the Ghetto, ‘Ghezzi’ replied with a link ratio ranging from 3:1 to 2.3:1 giving an average of 2.65:1 (8mm x 3 = 24mm thru to 8mm x 2.3 = 18.4mm)
Therefore +8mm will result in an average increased rear height of +21.2mm (just under 7/8” in old money).

It’ll be fitted with a heavy b’stard spring. This will increase the ‘turn in’, will be a case of suck n see whether I drop the forks through the triple clamps to balance it???
