Interesting note: One of the individuals following Pro Fusion is none other than Paul Nebbs - aka PhuketPaul. Wondering who actually came up with this design.
Since we have no solud info we're left with theories concocted by our wildest imagination. Here's my take.

It's Paul's design. He had dealt with Oli at least once years ago when he bought a decat. He even lists and credits oli on his site at gsxsinfo. Knowing he was leaving this all behind he sold the design, a last cash grab on the way to permanent retirement. I contacted pro fusion yesterday about the decat and received an immediate response. I then replied and mentioned Paul Nebbs and our situation being left high and dry, chasing refunds through Paypal. No reply. I understand he didn't want to touch that. Silence can be loud on occasion.

When life throws you curves, lean into them.

I also contacted them to see if they were going to produce his header design since they were producing his adapter design.
Took a day to get back to me, but finally communicated that they had no intention of getting into full exhaust systems.


If my refund falls through, I will probably just do a decat and shock upgrade and call it a day.

I'm in the same boat. The decat is hard to pass up. I already bought an almost new r1 shock. I'm glad i can now access the adapter. Not a bad outcome after all the drama.

I checked a Yamaha parts list before I bought it, and the 17 and 18 rear shock is the same part number so I would think they would be the same. Hope so anyway...
