I'm thinking I'm about 7mm long eye to eye

I did the best I could to measure out 148mm. Should be pretty close. Also shimmed the rearset out and swapped hex bolt for a button head. Clearance looks much better all around and it raised the rear a surprising amount. I might order a factory link just to be sure.

Sorry to leave you hanging. I am painting my lift and I have an extra bike in my garage right now. I need to get in the attic to retrieve the dog bone to measure it. Bikes are blocking access. I had it in my head you had some sort of adjustable clevis and I could measure the oem shock when I pulled it out. Nope you have a adjustable drag link.

I ordered a factory drag link on ebay. Went to install it to find that at some point the previous owners installed the shock link plates wrong. Right side was correct but left side was flipped around and rotated around. It made trying to install the drag link almost impossible. Pulled them both off to find them slightly bend, likely from being misaligned. Luckily the drag link I bought came with the plates and hardware. As usual what should have been a 20 minute job turned into almost two hours. At least I have piece of mind knowing it is all to spec now.

You Know, when I looked at your photo I thought the plates looked odd but I've got Attacks and the OEM are labeled so I could not compare it and figure being labeled nobody would screw it up. I should have spoken up.

It's why I didn't track the bike the day I bought it. Being able to go over the bike in detail with the manual by my side helps so much. When nothing lined up I knew something was fishy. I went to go wiggle something and saw the stamped letters facing me and the light bulb went off that it wasn't the way the manual said it should be. Good lesson learned. I'm glad I didnt force anything and make matters worse.
