I have an 07 MKiii COMP.
Just out of curiosity, why is the Fox rear shock mounted upside down?

Mine was mounted with the adjustment at the bottom and facing the back of the bike. I asked the same question and never got a reason why most said it can go any way. the funny part is I found pics of MKIII's with the same shock in 3 different positions. I took mine off and made it so adjustment it up top and facing the front. I have had no issues.

it doesn't matter which way it goes, but i think it looks better with the shaft at the top and the body at the bottom.

Sorry to thread jack, but I couldn't find the huge thread on rear shocks, so I thought I would post here.

I am currently running the default Maniou Radium R rear shock. I haven't had a whole lot of complaints, I just wonder what I am missing? I have some extra money and would like to see if this would be a worthwhile upgrade.
