2017 RG Rear Shocks

G'day people..

Was doing a bit of work on my 17 RG this weekend...namely removing the bags to fit the 4 point docking kit..

While the bags were off I thought Id do a bit of cleaning while enjoying a tin and the IOMTT..

Looked at the rear shocks...apologies if this has been asked before but why is the left adjustable shock a big unit while the righty seems to be off a little scooter commuter...ie really small?

First time bagger owner here and I love it...awesome jigger, just curious as to the above

I have a 2017 RGU has one adjustable Shock and a Piggyback Spring. I changed to Ohlins #6 from MotorcycleMetal (Howard) Much Smoother and more adjustable. Wife and I donít bottom out on the road anymore.
