Mine is a 2008 so there was a big difference, since I changed both, front and back.
I went for Tractive, so I can keep the ESA functioning. I don't know about newer
models, but for mine had to send in the rear shock's motor. Shipping from Canada is
not cheap, so I bought a used shock on eBay and shipped it directly to the shop.
That way, I can still use the bike and after, have a complete set of shocks.
The man to talk to is Ted Porter ... ation.html
Removing old and installing new is a breeze, providing you have some tools and
basic mechanical knowledge. Any questions, Ted will be there to help you. I have
to mention here that I worked on mine on week end and asked question Sunday.
Same day, Sunday, Ted replied and my little problem was solved.
