FS : Ohlins 919 Shock (from CBR600F3) - $350

As per title. Those of you who've been here a while have probably seen my previous FS thread (to say nothing of my build one) but here is an updated version with more recent pictures, and a price.

The story is : I found and bought this used CBR600F3 Ohlins shock and had it totally re-valved to exactly emulate an HO201. The internals are all brand-new, and have never been used. I also had the reservoir line replaced (it was going anyway in the original shock), with a 10cm line, which is slightly longer than the one on the stock 919 shock. My suspension guy, Windmill Motorsports, also happened to have on hand : 1.) a hydraulic preload adjuster, which I'll include, and 2.) a 180 spring, which I now both have. I had bought a 160 spring initially - that would've been way too light for me, as it turns out! - so I have both springs, giving you the choice.

There will be some (slight?) work required to fit this. The two things that will need to be done (that I know of) :

1. Grind a slight bit off of the frame shock mount, so the remote reservoir banjo bolt doesn't contact.
I can supply more info if required;
2. Manufacture something for the coolant tank. I did the first step already on my bike, and thought that would be it - but the coolant tank was the next obstacle, and that's where I stopped. I'm sure an enterprising soul could figure this out pretty quick, but I just ran out of time and willpower.
(3. The reservoir will also need to be mounted, obviously.)

The spring will also need to be mounted, as you can see from the pictures. The reason I had it removed was so that I could take the suspension through its full travel when grinding (step 1 above), to make sure the bolt would never contact. So that's one less thing you have to do. Once the grinding is done, the proper spring for your weight can be put back on, with the preload adjuster.

Given the fact that this is essentially a brand-new shock (where it counts, anyway!), and that you have all that you need to turn it into your own HO201 including preload adjuster, and a choice of springs; but, that there is indeed some work required, I feel the price is fair. I am however open to pushback if the community feels this is too much.

I am in Canada so shipping will have to be factored in as well - although I'm not sure shipping will be that much, as the box shouldn't be too big.

Let me know if you have any questions!

(Mods, if possible/required, the previous FS thread can be deleted.)

Nobody? Willing to budge on price if that's required. Or is there just simply no interest...?

I have an interest, but the time is not right. I would love to try some upgrades, but there's no way I can get to it right now.
