Dean,
What do you weigh?
The 700 spring is one step heavier than what comes standard on the Penske shock for the 600rr, so it would be good for a 180-200 lb. rider.


rc51eviltwin,
Odd, I haven't received any pm's from you.:

Anyhow, if you get a chance, send me what you're looking for, or give me a call at the shop Tuesday when we reopen. Thanks.

With gear it would still be in the range.
When they serviced it, was it a full rebuild or just a fluid / nitrgen change?

I HAD THE SHOCK SERVICED AT PENSKE'S OFFICAL SHOP IN READING, PA ON 12/06 TO REPLACE THE OIL, SEALS, AND CHECK THE SPRING RATE. NOT MANY MILES ON THE SHOCK SINCE THE SERVICE. ALL RECEIPTS INCLUDED. WORK BOOK AND NOTES INCLUDED ALSO. INCLUDED ARE THE CUSTOM MOUNTS I MADE FOR THE 600RR TO MOUNT THE REMOTE RESEVIOR. I WAS 180LBS WHEN RIDING AND THE SPRING INCLUDED IS FOR THAT WEIGHT BUT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO AT LEAST 10LBS IN EITHER DIRECTION WIHTOUT A PROBLEM


heres what he says Patrick

Doing a shock and not completely rebuilding it? Who would do that?

Plus, I wouldn't take it to them if they even offered that.
