Looking to make a piggyback shock fit....

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to make room for a K-Tech DDS Lite or Pro rear shock.  Switching to K&N pod filters would be one easy way.  Has anyone done this yet?  Anyone know the diameter of the throttle bodies that the pod filters would mount to?  Thanks.

@hordpower is a supporting vendor and produces 'airboxes' for the Fz/Mt-07
 
They are more or less pods... hut he's added his special touches and gotten a big return in HP to boot

ATGATT... ATTATT, two acronyms I live by.

Yes, but with his long runners, the filter ends up still interfering with a piggyback shock.  I'm willing to give up some HP for a piggyback shock.  It's just what I'm looking for.

Loooking at the picture of the Hordpower airbox on the fz-07... The pod sits about finger thickness above the preload adjustment nut on the stock shock...why do you wanna fit this shock to this bike???

I like the shock.  I am aware of the remote reservior options, but a piggy back makes sense as a cleaner, more reliable setup.  Plus, sometimes it's fun doing something different....

I looked at this early on but ended up with a no reservoir shock as it is a road only bike.
I was going to make a new carbon /glass airbox with an appropriate relief in the bottom.

Go forth and modify my son...go forth and modify...

Easy way is buying a shock that fits... beyond that you need to consider mods or removal of airbox. For me, I'm not racing... so a standard non-reservior shock is more than enough. I got a Nitron R1 for a really good deal, piston separated (nitro) not emulsion. Hell, I think it's the same design as WP and Ohlins. They might have a reservior, but that usually for off-road shocks that have tons of travel and work very hard.

Do you have a direct link for the FZ-07 version and pictures of it mounted?  Thanks.
