The Wilbers is a few millimeters narrower. This means that over the years the bushing inside the swing arm has moved
to the right (making the gap narrower.
To get the original shock back on I needed to push it back; the question is: How to do so road-side?

Use the upper bolt from the shock, add one of the cones from the wheel bolts, and press it back.
Works well!
