 +====== R6 Rear Shock Swap======
 +
 +**What you'll need:​**\\ ​
 +  * 06-08 R6 shock (earlier years WON'T work without alot more work) 
 +  * Spacers ​
 +  * Dog bones
 +  * I also recommend a heavier spring for the fzr600, around a 650-750lbs, the stock r6(~500lbs) is perfect for the fzr400.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +
 +**The Shock:​**\\ ​
 +These can be picked up of eBay for next to nothing ~$25.00USD.\\ \\ 
 +:!:You will need to round the lower shock mount so that it clears the suspension knuckle.:!:
 +
 +All of the R6 shocks that can be used for this conversion look like this\\ ​

 +This image dipicts were you'll have to grind the shock slightly so it clears the knuckle.\\ ​

 +
 +**The spacers:​**\\ ​
 +You need two of these spacers as the FZR shock is 10mm wider than the R6 and uses a 12mm bolt as opposed to a 10mm bolts.[ 10mm dia hole drilled through]FIXME. The green section needs to be 5mm wide, diameter doesn'​t really matter and can be anywhere from 14mm to 20mm. The red section should be just under 12mm dia and ~7mm long. For the FZR400 ignore the stepped down section on the left(red) as the FZR400 uses a 10mm bolt which is the same size as the R6, so you only need the green section.\\ ​

 +
 +**Dog bones:​**\\ ​
 +~10mm short than the FZR dog bones, this raises the bike back near stock. 6mm thick.\\ ​

 +
 +Stock on the left next to two new ones\\ ​
 +{{:​r6_shock_swap_8.jpg?​360|Click To Enlarge}}
 +
 +For the fzr400(3en1) I had to grind a tiny amount of the top frame mount although I didn't have an issue with the 600.
