Hi Keith,

I’m considering doing this too. Are you getting any errors on the dash? How did you cal off the ABS unit?

Also, can you confirm that stock gearing is 520 15/42. Sprocket Center lists the V4 (I know non R) as 525 15/41.

I was concerned since you can no longer turn abs fully off like the 1199, I did turn it to the lowest setting- abs front only. I got no errors at all after riding it last night.

The stock R gearing is 15/42 520 and I kept the same ratio's.

Weighed the bike with full tank and its at 418 pounds now.
Thanks from youngR and shigeru

Sorry for all the questions, I’m considering the shock swap also. Is it pretty easy to swap out? Or was it involved and you had to remove the exhaust header.

I would look at my bike, but I’m at the airport in Austin coming home from MotoGP.

No prob, I post my stuff in case it helps anyone.
It's super easy, just two bolts for the shock itself. You will have to support the rear of the bike and drop the swingarm down. I just bought two 3" long bolts I could thread into the unused rearset peg mount locations then lowered the bolts onto jack stands, then lowered the swingarm stand.
