Don't have one, but I can get you Norm's phone number if you want?
Which shock are you installing. If a ZZR, may not need a rocker.

Ride safe, Ted

Thanks but I've already contacted him.....I'm just too cheap to pull the trigger yet.  Not ZZR.  C14 shock

I'm curious if the Soupys adjustable links would work with the C-14 shock.

they don't have the "bow" offset, to fit astride that shock.

I think I recall a member that built offsets to push the links further from the rocker. (would allow the links to clear the shock spring)
I will try to find that posting, but I think the offset would significantly increase the amount of load on the bolt that passes thru the rocker.

Ride safe, Ted

Update; Found the discussion. May work, but he was using the ZZR1200 shock when he did the mod.
