Hi Guys, does anyone know if a ZX9R shock will go straight onto a ZX12R? I’m guessing it could be made to fit but keen to know if it would be a straight swap.

The zx-12r one fits straight into the zx-9r E's so a straight swap, the yellow springs a little weaker though so you may have to crank down the mainspring by 1mm or 2mm.

Nice one, thanks for that. Seen a Ohlins for 9r at a good price and wanted to be sure I could fit it on my 12r before I took a chance on it

You will probably need to swap out the ohlins spring to get the best out of it, and I don't know about how the internal working for the Ohlins will work for the 12.

I’ve pushed the button and brought the shock, I’ll get it serviced and a new spring anyway as it’s set up for a 14st rider and I’m a good bit heavier than that. I’ll give some feedback here on how I get on with it once it’s on the bike.
