I've been searching and I can't see anyone thats put a gen 2 rear shock with the remote adjuster on a gen 1. All the schematics I've looked at looks like it would swap without any big modifications. Has this not been done/not a popular swap because they don't fit or is it because the gen 2 rear shock isn't as good as the gen 1? I've seen some people say the gen 2 is to firm but I'm right at 200lbs and gonna have luggage and possible a passenger.

Worth it? Possible? Why or why not?

Thanks in advance from a newish rider

Suggest you do a SEARCH for putting a Yamaha R1 shock (from an '07 or '08) into your Gen 1. Here are pics of BOTH my Gen 1s 'wearing' an R1 shock, AND my '15 w/ the shock from the "written-off" '09! EXCELLENT shocks.
