Great post mate!


cheers, chaos.
but it was just collating other members excellent work in to, for me an easy to find list,
with sortable and clearly defined sections.

so i'm just the curator of other peoples talent, really.

( while you are here, can i ask...

when i tried to cut n paste, i lost a lot of the formatting, and had to redo it.

would you know if was i doing something wrong, could i have found an easier way to transport
data from one post to another, in it's entirety... :-?? )

When you use the copy and paste function mate it merely copies the text. With bb coding obviously the text visible isn't necessarily all the info.

The easiest solution (being an admin) would be to edit the original post, (obviously without changing anything) then copy and paste, as the original post, contains the important info I.e <b> </b> For bold <font> <colour> ect. Non admins can just use the quote function but then remove the quote marks

If it's from another forum, again being an admin, you can right click on, go to view page source, then search for a key word in what you are wanting to copy. Highlight the entire section on code, and paste it as html. Being admin again you should still be able to post html code even if it's disabled.

Obviously it's generally only quicker that way if important a mass of information, but the top option being the best one for in house.

And don't be modest.... There's a lot of great guys here with a lot of helpful info but that must have took ages to find the info I. The mass of threads and collage it into an all in one! It's great to be part of a community that try's to make life easy instead of the ol' "use the search function" you get on ALOT of forums.

Cheers for the info, I'll try and give that way a go next time. :thumright:

And the above, I hear that, and agree entirely about the difference in forum attitude to helping others.
It is rare, and a major part of what makes the forum tick, for me... :ymhug:

Hi Jaz, yes gsxr 1000 shocks fit k3-k8

Gsxr 1000 shock lengths

K1, K2 - 329 mm DOES NOT FIT

K3, K4 - 332.5 mm

K5, K6 - 325.5 mm

K7, K8 - 315 mm

K7/K8 are closest to rf900 shock and offer more adjustment the others will jack up the bike more due to being longer but only 10-20mm. only need washers as per guides.

for GSXR 600/750 shocks can use K4-L0 - best to get a later one due to mileage and more adjustment and the L0 (L zero) its the model after the K8 but effectively a K8 shock.

also GSXR 600/750 shocks are slightly slimmer so have bit more room to manoover.

worth searching for L0 as are 2012 bikes so get uber low milage ones or ones that been turned into racebikes from new.

hope that helps :)
