Another 599 Question

When did they start selling them in the US?

I have a 2003-2004 HO541 Ohlins shock I will sell real cheap to someone, but I don't know if they even sold that model in the US, but of course I ship overseas too...

Any chance that Ohlin's shock would allow the rear to be lowered more than the stock shock?

It is adustable length, but it is mostly for increasing ride height by 11mm, not decreasing it

There's a new '06 in Jasper, AL on ebay. I'd love to have one, but wife gets to pick. Coming from an SV650, she just doesn't like the feel.
