    I put one on my 99 Mille it was from a 2003 Mille but the dog bone from the 2003 was too long the shock would hit the back of the swing arm so I had to use the dog bone from the 99 Mille hope this is ok :0(

    Hi

    I've got an Ohlins shock on a 2000 Mille and it's great - no issues at all, but it was like that when I bought it so I can't say what linkage differences there are.

    Regards

    Dave

    It would be very small on the road but I will be doing frequent track days when I return from Afghanistan. On the track is where the shocks and forks will be get really loaded during heavy braking and hard turning.
