Stock shock length on '85 K100RS

I am prepping an '85 K100RS for the road. Bought it a couple of years ago and finally just about done. The remote air reservoir shock on it seems short.

Could someone with a stock shock measure the unsprung length when the bike is on the centerstand & let me know the length? Eye to eye length is what I'm looking for.


I did a search, but could find no answers to this.

The bike is a nice, repainted blue, and I think it really does only have 34K on it. The speedos were bad for failing, but on this one, the black muffler guard is not rattling, no tabs broken off - the typical sign of miles.
