They will fit, but the Wee shock is a couple on mm shorter, sprung lighter, and isn't damped as accurately due to being an emulsion shock rather than having the oil and nitrogen separate like the Vee shock does.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

I can live with a few MM shorter..the difference will be made up in the lack of sag. the shock in question has been re-sprung and re-valved by Daughtrey's ... to same spec's I would have mine done to.... just wanted to make sure that they would direct swap hardware wise... thanks GW
