Found out the 09 rear shock is the same as a 07/08 so got a low mileage rear shock for her and slapped her on, no modification at all,straight swap,set up everything to hard ish... felt great but problems with turning in, seemed sluggish, not wanting to turn easy into to turns..so put back the 6mm spacer that i removed when i first got her...( as im a short arse) softened shock up a bit, ran out of time so will see how she responds to settings on friday....

That's good info to know. I should've swapped mine with a newer one when I swapped springs....

Id red that you had to modify the bottom of the shock for an 08 to fit an 06 zx6r, but it just went straight on no probs..well happy..
