929 ride height adjuster?

Does anybody make a ride height adjuster for a stock 929 shock?

I've never seen anything that changes the length of the shock but a few companys make different length dogbones and plates that will alter the ride height. Dan Kyle is the only name I can remember though. For better or worse that will most likely change the progression of your suspension and you may need to change to a stiffer of softer spring. I bought an Ohlins instead.

The guys I know with 929s have replaced the rear shock with Ohlins or WP with built in ride height adjusters. The suspension specialists over here all reckon that the 929 shock is not great (hard spring and harsh damping).

Thanks guys. I figured there wasn't one available.
So far the shock is treating my tyre better than my old GSXR did so for now I'm happy with it. Spring weight seems to be in the ballpark and I can always re-valve it if I feel it needs it.
