shocks

  1. Quick question. Are the rd04 and rd07 rear shocks interchangeable?

    Africa Twin
    Will they physically swap over? Specifically will an rd07 fit an rd04? Mine is getting very tired and a bit bouncy but I am really tight on funds (kidney anyone?) So just trying to expand my options. Tia.

  8. Will rear shock of Transalp XLV 700 / 2012 model, fit Africa Twin RD 07 / 1994 model

    Africa Twin
