Rear shock upgrade for 990R

I have a Brutale 990R 2010 and the rear shock leaves something to be desired. So I purchased the more adjustable stock sachs shock from a crashed 2012 Brutale 1090RR, it's higher spec and much more adjustable with external resavor. The guy on eBay I purchased it from says it will be a direct fit but I am not sure. Anyone here have any experience or know if I it's a direct fit, or are there modifications I will have to make?

Thank in advance, any advice or knowledge much appreciated!

Ah yes, the chick or the egg. So, if I can't get a reply on the forum then I may not take the chance of trying to fit it. But if I do go for it I will most defiantly report back to the hive.

Cheers!

My thoughts on that are as follows: 1. it's easier to ask if someone has done it already thus avoiding the busy work. 2. what if there are unforeseen things like different linkages or other things that don't just involve the swing arm.

I did go over to Munroe motors and try to talk to a technician there but they didn't know. Either way I appreciate your help.

Ok, I have done a good bit of research and am going to put a 1090rr rear shock on the 990r, it looks like it might work? As many who have been helping me on this have stated it's much more complex then looking at the part number for the swing arm, as many things Italian are. First comes the rebuild of the 1090RR shock then the install. More to report once this all goes down.

If anyone has anything good to add to this please chime in.

Thanks

I would be surprised if it didn't fit.
The 990 and 1090 came out at the same time and visually have the same frame features such as engine mount points.
As I understand it, the 990 is a stripped down version, different brakes, non adjustable pegs, engine internal changes, steel frame, and suspension equipment changes.

Make sure you set the ride height and preload up with the tool as per the workshop manual. It does make a difference.

UPDATE: FUCKING NIGHTMARE! The shock after a total rebuild was installed, turns out it was the wrong shock and miss represented by the Ebay seller, it was actually for a 2001-2005 MV F4, the resavour was totally in the wrong place. So I paid for a rebuild, install, and then remove. Fucking just gonna get a Ohlins some day.

Total damage $668.00 USD for the wrong piece of equipment. What a fucking huge lesson to learn. That said I have a very nice newly rebuild rear F4 Shock for sale.

DAMIT!!
