    Unhappy Swapping sachs shock on 07 tuono R for ohlins factory. Fitment issues.

    Hey are the control arms/linkages the same on the sachs and ohlins? I just bought an ohlins shock and it just doesnt want to go on the bike. It's an 07' tuono R. Seller says the shock is from an 09 rsvr. Looks like it should fit but it's not goin on. The shock needs a rebuild anyway but before i take it to my suspension guy I just want to make sure I have all the right hardware. Thanks.

    Where did you get the shock? RSV4's came out in 09 so maybe a problem there?

    Yep. That's the one. Except it says 124424 instead of 123677

    AP 8271 / 124424 / Ohlins racing / 516

    I dont know about the RSV4 shocks, but the RSVR Ohlins is an easy direct bolt in. Took me about 30 min.

    Maybe throw AF1 an email and see if they can confirm which shock you have.
