It's the stock shock.

Shim the rear and get a racetech spring and adapter collar. It will help.

Thanks for verifying that it's stock. I shimmed the rear and I will play with the preload and compression and see what I can do with it

Bringing the thread back for a couple more questions. Ive been thinking about getting another rear shock possibly from something else like the gen 3 zx10r. This is a better shock no? Are there other options that could benefit my gen 2? I know there is always the ohlins etc but no looking to drop so much dough right now. Also Ive been asked if my front fork springs have been shortened. I was wondering if someone could verify this for me. Right now as the bikes sits from the bottom of the fork seal to the bottom of the tube is about 93 -94mm in length with the bike on its wheels. I know I could take out the spring and measure it but thats a lot of hassle. Also been thinking of getting the front forks revalved. Any good recommendations?
