Did some searching and could not find answer. In an effort to save a little money, I pose this question. What other years of rear Ohlins shocks will fit an 05 R1. Reason I ask is older models are always cheaper. I know that the preload adjust on the older models is on a cable or tube line, but I can deal with that. Are they the same length or will there be shimming to do. I ride mostly on the street with the occasional track day (forth coming).

You could try going to the Ohlins website and comparing their overall dimensions from various years to the '05. If the '05 is longer you'll need shims to make up the difference. If the '05 is shorter, you're probably screwed.
