03/04 B1H Rear Shock fitments

Any one know what other shocks will fit the B1H? Looking at improving my stock one for a WP/Ohlins/Maxton or Wilbers one but i need to know if other zx6r rear shocks will fit straight onto the B1H.

the 07-08 zx6r shocks will work and is good upgrade with more tuning adjustments over the 1st gen 636 models, but will make the bike sit up a inch higher tho.

If you go on demon tweeks website, you can now put in you make and model, and it will show you which upgrades you can have based on what they have in stock. This will give you a good idea, and then you can keep on looking on ebay for an upgrade.

Also there are some places that will refurbish and upgrade you current suspension at a franction of the cost, and use top quaility internals such as Ohlins. I've used KAIS in the past.

So anything from an 05 to an 08 should fit straight on?

Looking for a fully adjustable one for my track bike and trying to make it searching for one a bit easier.

KAIS can make your stock rear shock fullly adjustable, my mate had his R1 standard shock refurbished, and is now adjsutable.

Also the the 03/04 ZX6 does have have level of adjustment on it, you, proably need the best settings for you, for both track and road.

Cheers zx racer, now for the next question............

Anyone used Wilbers race shocks before and do you know what they are like for quality compared to the more well known items like WP/Ohlins/Maxton.

Willbers are the same as Technoflex which i have used on my race 250. they are a really good shock. i would say as good as ohlins for the money but not quite as good as WP. Maxton i don't have experience of but i hear they are very stiff and take a lot of getting used too. Have you thought of Nitron? i have one on my 6 and it is very good. Go for the race one as opposed to track if you look at Nitron.

I'm looking at getting the nitron race shock for my 6, so i'm guessing it's worth the money as it's not as expensive as some of the others.

I'm unsure what to go for. I've seen a fully adjustable, with height adjuster, Wilbers race shock but because i haven't heard of them before and it's difficult to find any usefull reviews of them then i'm unsure as what to do. Do i take a punt or do i wait for a more well known brand to appear??

like i said Willbers are (possibly reworked) Technoflex. i have personal experience of these, Nitron and Ohlins and have to say that Ohlins are bottom of the list. If you can afford WP go for it, if not Willbers or Nitron would be my choice.

Ratty,

I took delivery of it a few weeks ago and it looks bloody good quality to me. Its now with my mechanic friend who is doing a bit of work on it for me over the winter so it's ready for next year. Looked into k-tech fork internals but at £500 fitted i think i'll give it a miss. I'll post photos of it when i get chance to.

Cheers
