I recently picked up a risse genesis trunion damper direct from risse in the states. I paid around £150 for the shock, £50 to post and got stung with a £50 import tax bill. Ouch.
Looks nice, but doesn't fit. The genesis damper is a lot wider that the standard shock or the fox float, and hence so is the trunion. Without machining/drilling there is no way I can get the trunion into my linkage.
Am I being a complete plonker or missing something? I've had a few people look and no solutions as yet.
Do you mean its too fat to jiggle in to position or too fat to fit.
Having just had to swap mime for my spare cos the seal just blew, I've been reminded what a pig it is to get the std one in place.
What diameter is the main shock body ?
Can you remove the body from the threaded collar and get the collar in place and then put the body back in the collar ?
Info would be appreciated as I'm (was !) thinking of buying a Risse !
