I bought one of the last Varas in 2014, made in 2011 I believe. I’ve done three long European rides (3K to 4K miles) and it’s been brilliant. It’s now done nearly 41K miles and in preparation for another long ride around Europe I’m thinking I should change the rear shock. Just looking at Haynes it looks a bit of pain with having to remove the rear ABS module. If anybody still out there has changed the rear shock please can they let me know if it can be done without removing the rear ABS module? I don’t fancy purging the brakes of hydraulic fluid. Also, can you think of anything else that is likely to be worn out at that mileage?
