Can you swap rear shocks between the 99 and 01 R1?
I used the same shock(Penske & stock 02 shocks) on my 1998 and 2002 R1's, they were the same. You should be good on the 98 - 01 swap too!

I was asking because I wanted to know if a used penske rear shock off of a 99R1 would fit a 01R1. I asumed that it would. I won it off of E-Bay last night for $305. How is the Penske that you have?

I have the three way adjustable Penske and it is awesome.

To my knowledge, although there were over 200 minor changes between 98-99 and 00-01, there were no changes to the shock size, length, linkage, or swingarm. Therefore they should be swappable. The bodywork and maybe electronics are really the only stuff that is not bolt-on swappable between those years.
