Argh... When you honestly feel that this suspension is holding you back, thats when you might consider dropping the big dollars..
I talked to several respected (known racers) and suspension pro's.. Before deciding on my ZX. They're the ones who pointed out just how good the new stockers are. Which pushed me over to the ZX paddock.. Including the rear shock, although not as good as the front... Also from your post's.. It sounds as if You haven't even rode one yet let alone set up for you?? Might I suggest you try it first..
