Are they interchangeable? I have an '02 ST4S bike I am parting out. Customer is looking to upgrade his M900 suspension. I know the two have different style linkages so I wasn't sure if they could be swapped and if it would be worth it. anyone do this yet?

thanks!

If the mounts are the same and they are the same length eye to eye I don't see why it wouldn't work. The shock should fit a 2002 and newer Monster up to the 695 because the Monster frame was based on the ST IIRC.

i think the older monster shock is longer? total shock travel may vary too - i've not checked the later st based shock. early shock has 67mm including bump stop.

plus there is limited room around the top of the older monster shock for a res hose, so the position of that may also be an issue.
