You can get a shock-mounted hydraulic preload adjuster from Ohlins that is very similar to that on the Hyperpro unit:


and for some applications they will mount the hose-fed adjuster to the reservior:

Ohlins probably thinks the frame-mount gives more convenient access. Other possibility is that their shock-mounted (their term is integrated) adjuster won't fit on the GS.
