PostSubject: Stelvio Shock Questions   Fri Nov 16, 2018 6:42 pm

I'm getting ready to order a Stelvio shock from the folks at Hagon Shocks Limited in the UK.  Am I correct that the Stelvio shock will be a drop in replacement (remove stock shock, install Stelvio shock) for the stock shock and that no special modifications will be needed?  Just want to ensure I know what I am getting into before I take this on.

Thanks,
Alden

GHTE and I replaced his 850 GRiSO shock with a standard Stelvio Sachs shock about 2 years ago. Simple job, best with 2 people to help position it, but not impossible by yourself, not difficult just a matter of supporting the rear of the bike, no special parts or mods needed.
Total time taken less than 2 hours with plenty of time included for the usual banter and crap.

What are the advantages to have a Stelvio shock on a GRiSO ?

25mm longer, much harder to bottom out, more supple, quickens up the steering, gives you easy pre-load adjustment, no mods required. Guzzi should have released the GRiSO with this shock as standard, especially as it probably cost not much more and they had it in the parts bin.

Other benefits I've heard about the Stelvio shock ... spring is heavier than the stock GRiSO (a good thing), and the HS Compression is less on the Stelvio shock (another good thing).

Thanks, Sidrat. I'm going with the Hagon option based on your comments when I asked about this a while back.

Just curious, any issue with the bike leaning further on the sidestand with the longer shock?

Not noticeable or problematic, maybe because the sidestand is closer to the forks than the swingarm ?

Would this work? For a GRiSO, but adjustable length.
