    I wish to apologise ahead of the following question if this has already been answered in this forum before.
    Can a rear shock from a gen 6 ABS be installed in a gen 6 non ABS model or is there bracket / mounting mods needed to achieve .
    Cheaper option than ohlins , penske , other.
    Thanks for any help on this.

    The only difference (if I remember correctly) was that the ABS model had the knob for preload adjustment on the rear shock. They should be interchangeable. Hopefully someone will come along and confirm that.
