    Question for VFR1200X USA members

    I have europian VFR1200X 2017 and have interes in Touratech, tractive rear shock!
    I contact  Touratech Germany and thay answered that it does not fit my 2017 model! (only SC70 2012-2013 acording to them),
    I contact Tractive suspesion in Holland(thay make this shocks), and thay are not sure if it fits my model!
    I contact Ted Porter BeemerShop and he answered that, he thinks that shock schould fit, but i schould ask Tractive to be 100% sure! So i got little unsure, wgat to do, this shocks are good akording to some members hier and on other bike forums!

    So i was thinking since VFR1200X in USA is from 2016 is the same as Euro models from 2016 (SC76), could some of you USA members confirm this!
    Indentity plate of the bike is onder steering!
    If someone could take picture of the plate!
    If thay are same bikes than this shock fits my bike and i can order it. Touratech and Tractive people sims to not know that!
    Forum member Dembones (USA) did install this shock and it was no problems!

    I wonder why it wouldn't fit since the bike only changed the top front fairing (adjustable windscreen) and the software.
    Maybe they are not sure if the Evap cannister is not in the way but that bullsh#t cam be removed if that's the case.

    I think you are write about chanages on the 2016 bike, and, i wonder to, i just check the touratech nr in USA and Germany  and numbers for this shock are same!
    I do not anderstand this Jan Hagedorn from Touratech de, this men, just in short made clear that nothing fits, and made whole confusion!
    Shock cost about 1000eur, so i want to be sure it fits!!

    If you search for accessories for the 2017 VFR1200X almost every manufacturer says their products don't fit. The people you speak to from the companies just look up the same information you see on the web. If you look up the 2016 model year then many companies show their products fit.

    When you call a company always ask to speak to a higher level product specialist and not just the order taker. Instead of speaking to resellers, call the manufacturer and explain that your year isn't showing up and ask to speak to someone who really knows.

    I did exactly that! Sended Touratech de question if  the shock thay sell fits my bike!
    The answer came from,
    Jan Hagedorn / Head of After Sales and Technical Support!
    I contact Tractive Mr Tom Glazenmakers! I do not know his status but he said to me he is going to ask his engineers!
    Ted Porter Head BeemerShop!

    So still do not know USA Guys, is your bike SC76 model!
    If anyone can confirm, would be nice!!
    Thanks
