total length is longer, and travel is longer.
without abs, the cavity in front of the battery allows the reservoir to fit.

this experiment has been shelved, shock is still apart, but with some spacing it looks like it would work.
stock, the longer total length, allowed the bike to rock front to rear, experimenting with more preload, only made it seem more stink bug like.
i am not sure how, or if the stock bandit spring will fit.
demensionally, the bolt at top and bottom of shock fits the linkage, and there is room for resovoir without abs. (small frame tab needs grinding at top, and clevis needs small grinding to fit link at bottom, its almost a bolt up.

i do not know if valving is correct for this linkage, but i would think since bikes are similar in weight and wheel travel its close.
i was just busy with other things, and put stocker back on and got sidetracked.
