Wilbers 641 remote reservoir mounting
« on: November 16, 2017, 03:01:50 pm »
Hi all, wilbers shock arrived at last and fitted it today with no problems but could do with some suggestions for location of remote reservoir that won't make my eyes water!! Bike is a VF1000RE , most likely place looks like the sub frame below tail piece on the right side but looks like it could be mounted on frame rail below right hand side cover though heat from engine will not do it any good. Any pictures of where you have mounted yours would be great especially if it can still be adjusted.

decided to mount on right hand passenger foot peg bracket so i can adjust it though i've just been out for a ride and its fantastic, i don't think it will be improved by tinkering. i needed to raise seat height so followed biffs advice and went for a boldor shock instead of the vf1000r one this was about 10mm longer than standard and then extended the ride height adjustment about half way out and the result is the seat height is now about 10cm higher.

On my heavily modified FF, it is on the RH subframe rail just by the exhaust mount, with the remote preload adjuster sitting just forward of the battery under neath the side panel.

Thanks ascalon going to leave it where it is for now and give it a good test on the may Scottish trip, if all is well which I think it will be as wilbers seem to have set it up better than I could! I will make a bracket to fit it onto the seat sub frame even if it will never be adjusted it does look lovely!
