OK, first off, the new links..... I made these about .625 longer to slow down the motion ratio a little for more travel, but it also yields a little better curve.... I was going to make the center cut-out say FYYFF, but it would have cost more

Next was re-clocking the compression adjuster to clear the frame. It also got a AN weld on fitting for the remote reservoir. The AN fitting cost more, but it was worth it........

Since the inconsiderate WP engineers didn't make the bottom of the shock long enough, the bottom needed to be extended a little to keep the larger OD spring from fouling the swing-arm Lucky I had a donor shock laying around

The longer links also helped with this...
