    Hi Gents (and Ladies, if any)!
    I'm finishing my Falco project. I have RSV sachs shock, plates and dogbone. What should I install with the shock to keep the rear height as close to normal as possible? Second possibility might be to lover front shocks as much as possible. Has anyone tried to compensate the raised rear due to longer RSV shock?

    How much longer is it over stock?

    Honestly I would just ride it before making any other changes. The Mille and RSVR both respond well to raising the rear as much as possible. I suspect the extra length will probably be beneficial. Just be sure the lower end of the shock does not contact the dog bone on full extension. This would be a dangerous situation.

    RSV Shock is 5 mm longer. So the effective lift is approximately 3 times. I assume (before measuirng) that the rear will raise 15 mm.

    Hi!
    Falco needs the RSV links and collarbone. shock give SAG for 45 mm (should be 5-10 mm). After installing plates and dogbones from RSV. it all fits perfectly together. Rear rised approx 10 mm and it did not make it worse, vice versa. Now it is fitted, short test ride done. Hopefully I have time to test it on the track also.
    Thanks for the information.

    Tested on the track. Works well. I need to have service for the shock. It is a cheap upgrade for old Falco and worth every penny. Lifted rear makes it bit lighter but frankly speaking does not affect too much to handling. ! like it better this way!

    Great work, Tommi. You might be giving herr Schlosser a little run for his money!
