Default 08 600rr shock swap? (vid)

Hey has anyone tried swaping out the rear shock with a 600rr? I found this video and it looks very possible. Cheap too, you can get a rear shock for about 30 bucks one ebay . The man says that the shocks are the same length and the stock linkage was also used.

Has anyone tried this? The only other stuff I could find was people saying the res would get in the way of the frame but I guess not. What say you?

Bump, I'd like to get an answer too.

The shock on my F4 needs replaced (or resprung) and going to a newer 600RR shock would be ideal...

Word. I asked the guy who made that video if he actually mounted it up and rode that bike. He said no, not yet. Ill post up if/when he does do that.
