This are internals. Spring perch is on shock body.
I did cut it of since it will not be used again.

yea, it's more of the marketing bullshit.
monotubes manufacturers say that twintube is crap.
KW is a twin tube - so it can't be that bad.
anyway - the usual bottom line that it's better to have a good twin tube than crappy monotube :dance:

Spring perches removed and shock body shortened 25mm. Will make collar for standard size springs.
Hard to see on picture but I threaded end of the body. Next is to make screw on caps for it so I can open shocks easy in future.
Bottom of the shock will get schrader valve for nitrogen fill.

One shock I will never buy :)
Here is KW-V3
what you're trying to say? :)
on a personal note i can say that i had V3 on s2000 and i wouldn't call them perfect for every situation but they were pretty good indeed and covered my various needs quite impressively.

Search S2K forum and you find out. I revalved set of those for Rob over there. KW would not sell seals for shocks. I will not buy shock from company that does not sell parts for them.

I did find seals in Hungary and have them now but it took couple months of searching.
I also opened set of Clubsporst and they are same as V3 except for couple shims and price.
