    Default Hagon fitment issue

    I recently ordered some Hagon shocks from overseas for my 77GS750 and unfortunately the type I received are eye to eye. They have 12mm holes at each end and are 13" hole to hole. Is it feasible to make them work with minor modification?

    After further research I realized that modification is not the way to go and do I will re-order the correct 33015SA model with the clevis on the bottom.

    I've seen an adapter fitted somewhere on the internet but I wouldn't do it personally... You put an extra point of rotation in. I guess if you wanted to move the point of contact on the swingarm you could lay one flat along it but again I don't think it's ideal. Changing the pivot changes the ratio of the shock....

    You should be able to very easily sell the "incorrect" eye to eye shocks to a GS shaftie owner.

    13" eye to eye is the correct size for all the GS850G/GL, 1000G/GL, and 1100G/GL models. I'm not sure about the GS650 models.

    You'll also want to make clear how they were built as far as spring rate and damping; Hagon generally asks some questions about the rider's displacement and riding style then selects the shock bodies and springs to match.
