I decided to get a coil shock for my Alpine 160, thought it best to get the shock size from the horses mouth, so I phoned Orange a while ago - nice lady put me through to someone in the workshop who told me shock size was 200 x 57.. So I ordered a shock from the states, arrived after 3 weeks, went to fit it tonight and wow.. the shock size is wrong. The existing RP23 looks about 15mm longer... but, looking on the Fox website, Fox do not do a RP23 in anything longer than a 200 x 57 (7.875x57) Measuring the eye to eye on the RP23 its about 215mm (yes I know I should have done this to check what Orange said but...)
So is the RP23 custom to Orange ? anyone got any idea whats gone wrong here ?
thanks for help.
