I know, everyone is waiting, but I'm giving it a rest for a bit while others calm down..

Yeah but ask them how their doing it.See on Facebook this guy Kevin Dunmire, he has installed the 422 on his K9 and tieribbed the oillines to the other side of the frametube......https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=449044415886962&set=pcb.1671041796372913&type=3&ifg=1&__tn__=HH-R&eid=ARCQ_QEqnJdasgLmJW5getCTSOzjE6VsUe2Adh1hr3QYRlPl2A6tHjZLQRph4IkuoIiw8Pm2dVEAD5BZ
Very well stated ! Safety comes way before jury rigging stuff just to prove you can do something !Yeah but ask them how their doing it.
All they keep telling everyone is they fit.
All the pictures they keep showing everyone do not show the mount locations.
You can make just about anything fit if you hack it up and do different things but there are not that many folks out there that have the capability to make those types of adjustments. One of the purveyors of this has already admitted they have to modify the shock etc to get the left shock in. Do they have the blessing of Progressive? Is the shock warranty still good? You can claim all day "I have never had one fail" but then what happens when it does? Who is going to be responsible and who is going to pay reparations if the rider is injured or worse yet killed?
Hey if they do their due diligence and come up with an approved method for doing it more power to them.
But i find it hard to believe they have done that when they continue to refuse to show anyone how they are doing it.
Bottom line is still as I keep stating:
"422s do not "Bolt Up" to Mastiffs or K9s without doing extensive modifications"
422s are a nice shock.
They will "Bolt Up" to some of the BDs if you move the brake and oil lines around to prevent rubbing.
We put them on some of the BDs that they "Bolt Up" to.
But we don't and will not carve up shock eyelets and shock mounts to "Make" them fit.
It's not about being "Smart Enough" to figure it out.
It's about not putting our company or Customer's lives at risk.
It's not worth the risk when there are other viable options out there that are approved and do have the manufacturers blessing.
