Just FYI on gearing, I ran the same rear sprocket (46) everywhere I went. I changed from a 14 to 15 front depending on the track.

[QUOTE=tomLSTD;2078909]Progressive is , the Penske costs just as much as an Ohlins, but the GSXR shock is a great alternative. Besides, he's talking about $2500 to spend, not $250. Not exactly a small budget.


yea i got gixxer shock for 20$ shiped from ebay. works fine unless ur getting very fast. gixxer front

I need to stop being a little beeotch and get a penske/ohlins shock.

The stock rear just feels fine to me right now, especially exiting.

I had Andy at Metric build my '06 GSXR stock shock and the only thing that makes it feel any different than the Ohlins or Penske's I've run in the past has been the ride hieght adjustment. Since he revalved, sprung, and set up my stock shock, I've been very pleased and it has been very confidence inspiring...

YMMV

And +1 to John's post on the gearing, we don't even change gearing on our endurance bike and have been running the same gearing at all the tracks the CMRA races at

i assume it's about half the price of a double clicker shock (penske/ohlins).

which is a pretty penny saved....selling it would be a lot harder though. that's why i prefer the penske/ohlins route. after i'm done using it, i can sell it easily depending on price

Yeah, about half. I did it as an experiement, been working well so far. I've always had Ohlins or Penske (except one year on Fox) and I'm very happy with my current setup.

the SV forks are a damping rod style fork with the only adjustment of preload.

the racetech cartridge emulators do exactly what they are called.....they emulate the cartridge style fork and offer compression damping and a range of adjustment.
