From a previous email I had with Elka, they told me that some shocks don't have enough stroke available to allow for ride height adjustment when I queried them about mine, as it was also stated in the catalogue. I had mine lengthened by about 4mm to give roughly an extra 15mm of travel(by my calcs). So if it can be lengthened a little I would imagine a RHA could be added Either way you won't be disappointed.
Interesting.... well we'll have to see when they get there. I am super stoked to try this thing out on the F/G650 project bike I am working on.... Turning a F650GS into a F650GS Dakar with YZ250GS forks on the front, Elka shock on the back and putting the fat pig on a diet at the same time.
