Lmaooooo. Dude I can't believe racetech sent the wrong spring for my 636
I can............. they sent me springs that didn't even fit inside the fork tubes for a Concours1400 and then sent me springs that were still too big OD and rubbed hard to replace them
I never buy anything Racetech since that............they wouldn't even take those back, assholes................
As far as as the OP shock............. I like Penske and have many riders on them and own one myself........Very happy with them,
I am not enamoured with ELKA, mostly because their springs are different than everyone elses and the parts for rebuild/refresh cost more too--as far as function....... can really tell a difference
Ohlins, been alright and had them on a few of my racebikes in the 80's & 90's but other than a couple R6 guys on them currently........ I have not tried any of their line since then, so I expect they have come a long way since "back in the day"
Ktech.....only know one person on their suspension, but I have not ridden the bike---but he sure raves about it...........But worn out used up improperly set up stock to good, well set up aftermarket, everybody pretty much raves about it.........
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
