    Excuse my probable silliness, what is wrong with the suspension the bike comes with? do you really ride it so hard that you will notice a difference that can't be obtained with the standard adjustments?

    Here you go. 2008 ZX-10 triple clicker, $65.00 on fleebay. Stock spring seems ok for now... can't wait to ride when I get my retrofit back from Chad @ ARH.

    Rear spring too hard for me. No free sag. Then the damper doesn't have enough damping to control the squat on hard acceleration... stiffer spring to hold the platform is not the way to go.

    But if you think your bike is perfect for you leave it alone. Nothing wrong with that...

    The only thing I could fault the bike on was the rear shock. It just couldn't cope with the bumpy B roads of Derbyshire, creating a pogo effect from the front to the back between the forks and rear shock. The rear shock also looks like the cheapest component fitted to the bike (its as if Yamaha thought you would change it anyway, so lets not spend too much on it)

    I like your thinking on the cheap replacement Marthy ! Do any of the late R6 shocks come close to fitting ( like the FZS1000 swap for an item from the R6 ? http://foc-u.co.uk/index.php/topic,936.0.html )

    Might fit. But look at this one, this is the 2008-10 ZX-10. The canister is offset differently and fit much better. With the R6 you might have to cut the whole plastic tray where the ABS go.

    Hi,
    New to the forum but just to let you know that I'll be getting my MT back from Maxton soon with new shock and fork internals. It's the first tat Maxton has done and Richard says the transformation is marked
    Cheers

    Give it a good shakedown mikey then report back, as this is high on my list of adaptations.

    The import taxes killed the Penske offering from across the pond for me.
