Easier to contact him through his facebook page.

I'd hold off mate. Everyone who has ordered hasn't seen anything arrive yet. People are already chasing refunds.

Paul's adapter and the Pro Fusion one have the same problems, the R1 shock reservoir is getting contact with the swingarm. Pro Fusion will not produce them, Paul as completly disapered from the forum and other site.
No one make adapter to fit the R1 shock. There is a member of the forum that have made plate but he is also dealing with the contact beetwin the reservoir and the swingarm.

I have 2015 R1 shock for sale if you want one.

Being a glutton for punishment, prompted by the fact I'd also prematurely bought a new old stock R1 shock, I have purchased the adapter from Oli at ProFusion. There are a couple of other shocks I may look at but I physically want to have the bike in front of me to see what dimensions the shock would need to be.


Yes it would be easier to just go and buy a K-Tech or other after market shock but I'm one of those people that not only do I not have 600 - 700 plus to buy an aftermarket shock I also hate being beaten by inanimate objects!
