On the OEM Gen 4 shock, one of the adjustments has far too limited of a range. When I took my bike to a suspension expert for set up, he had one of the settings maxed out (sorry, can't recall which) and he wished it could go even further. The Gen 5 Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion shock (technology that debuted on the '12 CBR1000RR and is similar to an Ohlins TTX according to the link below) doesn't have that problem.


2013 ABS, Bridgestone T30 Evo, Woolich, Danmoto shorty & link, Rifleman's 1/5th turn, K&N, GP shift, Gen5 shock/links/dogbone, JT (-1/+0), EK, Shorai, EBC HH, AllBallz roller steering, heated grips, shorty levers, MotoDynamic signals & relay, plasti-dipped and vinyl wrapped (all green to black), Bestem carbon, PUIG Pro sliders, solo cowl, modded sprocket cover, TST fender elim. w/LEDs. 45,000km+ and going strong!
