    Swinger on 2002 Jekyll 800???

    Can i fit a swinger or 5th Air on my 2002 bike?

    I know that the newer ones have 3 ways on them but can i upgrade mine. My shock length is 6.270 and shaft travel is 1.5. Do i just buy a 6.5 by 1.5 and stick it there?

    please help!

    I had my 2002 jekyll shock pushed and I'm really happy with it.

    The longer 2003+ shocks will not fit your bike. I tried didn't work.
    Too bad, cause the Manitou spv 3-ways are the bomb on the Jekyll's

    Push it!!!!

    Only if you replace the front triangle.

    The swingarm will work, but the front end will not. Have the Shock PUSHED. You will not regret it.

    Hmmm only problem is that I am in Australia and to send my shock to the other side of the world is going to cost....
