Penske shock Q??

I just bought a 08 zx10 and it has a Penske shock with the remote reservoir and the dang thing is in my way. Is this shock as good as all these other people keep telling me?? I'm almost to the point of buying a stock shock to get my room back.. I don't do circles or figure eights I like them long low and christmas trees thanks guys

Penske is really good stuff. Can you remount the remote elsewhere?

The penske will be better than stock.

i'll trade you for a stock gen 3 shock :)
if your going to lower and stretch it the Penske isn't going to work well for that

In the end, if this is a true statement, sell the Penske. It's not going to do anything for you.

Thanks guys for the input I remounted the res on kick plate on the rear sets and I've tried it out at my local track and the track was crap everyone was spinning off the line but me! I don't like spongy it is on the launches but the hookup pro and the track likes it. I found out the previous owner threw a ton on money into this thing sb forks,sb shock kawi race Ecu, ported head,quick shifter etc. I feel alittle guilty stretching it but nobody here cares about a zx10 here if you aren't on a gsxr1000,zx14,or a busa your not on the map,but hey I love being the bastard child of the group...

Just keep thrashing the gixxers and don't worry about it. You are on a superior machine. Better looking and better performance.
