Another 919 rear shock

Just picked up an F2/3 Fox double clicker. Shock just serviced (supposedly). Unknown spring. So off to the suspension guy this week. Adjustable length, I think I can it down to about 284/285mm. Will keep updating when things happen.
What is the length of the stock 919 shock? Someone here mentioned it was 283mm is that correct?

I got it along with a older Penske double and some other RC stuff,from a guy who was doing a RC part out with I saw the Fox on the bench and asked what it was for, when he told me it was for a f2 and I bought it. He told me it had just been rebuilt. I think I paid to much. I guess I will find out when all is said and done.

A Melbourne Florida 919?

Really, there is another one?

Mine: 2002, home painted green. Uranium
Was going to buy a Harley Dyna or Triumph Bonneville until I realized that the 919 is waaaayyyyyy better.

So I repainted the tank, added a 17 tooth counter-sprocket, and did the "starter valve sync" Looks and runs like new.

Now I have to wash and polish it every week, like it was new.

Starter valve sync

Kind of like carb balancing in the old days.
Pull out the manometer, plug it in, find the little "starter valves". Turn the nut to balance.

My Honda was running a little ragged around idle. Cleaned it up a lot.
