How long is K100LT rear shock?
It seems to say 14 inches everywhere.
However, where is that measured from?
The reason I ask is that on mine, the rear seems to sit low although that might be artificial because I have wasp leading link forks as this is going on my outfit.
Mine is about 325 mm, 12 ¾ inches from eye centre to eye centre seem to be logical to be where they are measured from but sometimes, logic doesn’t apply.
It is actually 14 inches overall.
Should it be 14 inches overall or 14 inches eye to eye?

Thanks all.

Over-centres is the normal way to measure a shock, so yours is 325mm.

Thought so.  Mine is a short one then. I will have a look around for a proper one. Thanks
