Where two up and no suspension over a bump rubs the fender well.
Where 191 ~ 175mm says if you go anywhere else, the steering geometry is going to be compromised.
Where someone complains about high speed wobbles and front end is lowered.
Where you can envision a shopping cart wheel wobble where the pitch of the front patch is closer to the frame.
Where you can envision how stable a chopper is with the front end kicked out, but steers like shit around a corner being so far away from the frame [we talk mm here]... Just geometry jargon speaking.

I don't know? I took a different road to the same place. The view is more clear.

That is SWEET! Gotta weigh a couple lbs more than an ordinary shock but it sure is cool.

Thank you guys for your help. The H2 spring won't work - it's too long.
But thanks to you I have a lot of data, I will choose from Ohlins.

You probably have some experience with Ohlins. I have them front and back and I like them better than stock. I do not think the stock suspension was terrible but Ohlins is one of the aftermarket parts that do make a definite improvement and they do fit. If your stock suspension isn't doing it for ya, Ohlins will do better. I hear people like Penske for a shock too but you can't beat the looks of the Ohlins'.

Look at it this way... The h2 spring is lighter. Lighter means not as strong as the 14's thicker spring. You'll sag even worse. Load the 14's spring to compensate for the headlight aim. When riding solo, loosen the spring tension. Short of buying an expensive replacement with the right spring when ordering, I don't know what else to say but run the clicks and ring adjustments.
