Question XChallenge Shock to XCountry Shock - Anyone ever done this switch? successfully?

Swap BMW XChallenge Shock - to a BMW XCountry Shock

I have searched the BMW parts fiche and the threads on this sight and I can not find any conclusive info on this.

Is it possible? Has anyone ever done it?
Are they the same length?
Would I be giving up travel?

I am considering this as I like the dependability of a coil shock over the BMW air system.

Thanks for any help and info

Teeth to the wind,

It's too short (remember the Xco sits lower). But there are solutions available from Wilber, Hyperpro and I think many others.

Thanks Max!

that is exactly what I wanted to needed -

I found an XCountry shock for sale and thought it might be a quick solution - Ohlins and Wilburs are a bit steep for me right now so I better start saving $$$.

sits lower

How much would the bike be raised if I put a xCh shock on and Xco raise the bike?
