ohlins, elka, or penske would be best, but very expensive. you can always switch it out with another model OEM like a gsxr1K, zx10, busa, etc. Get on racetech and find the spring rate for the rear you are looking for.

IMHO stick with a good aftermarket product. They will last longer and work better. Ohlins is my pick, but certainly Penske is a very good product as well. Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited has the hook up fo />

I liked my Ohlins very much, but the Penske I have now works very well too. Can't go wrong with either.

By the time you spend the money to make that a "so-so" shock, you coulda bought a Penske or Ohlins new or used.
