Can I just fit the R1 shock without Paul's adaptor ? .am I understanding that it just helps to bring the bike back to stock height ?. I'd like to fit it and when Paul comes back i can purchase the adaptor . Thanks for any advice .I have a new 2018 R1 shock with 0 miles on it be a shame to waste it .

Have you tried contacting Paul via Facebook? I think he's still responding there from what I understand.

No, it will not bolt up. I would wait until people on here actually have the adapters in hand before contacting Paul on Facebook.

No reports I've seen yet. I've got my shock, waiting to see what happens. I'm being cautiously optimistic.

This was from the Facebook page...

Karan Riyakarn ----- "After 100 kms of riding. I can say, this upgrade give a lot of improvements to ride comfort and control. The OEM shock for sometime its like to throw me off my seat when I hit big bump or pot holes (with proper OEM suspension adjustment). Now those issues are gone, the R1 shock give me much more feedback, stable in high speed, and what the most suprise me is it a lot of comfort than the OEM (with the right setting, hint it offers you a lot). Lastly this upgrade is just cost me 220 buck for the adaptor, shock, and installation."

However, I think he lives in Thialand.

Yep, nobody in the USA has received one yet that I know of. I have had a R1 shock bolted up for a year and a half now, it’s fabulous. I purchased an adapter to get back to stock height is all.

Can the oem shock be revalved? Its a sealed crappy thing that cant be if i remember right. At $220 though, thats right about the cost of a revalve
