easier to send to revalve aad spring gen4 shock for 250 and be done with it.


Sourced some links that'll work with a factory dogbone from a forum member here who's fitted it to his bike with no issues. As much as I want to get the ohlins, I don't think it's cost effective for my needs... so ill stick to the gen 5 shock and have that re valved and sprung to my liking and move on from there

Agreed, a re-valve of the Gen 4 shock is the most logical option for most. Just to summarize the Gen 5 BFRC alternative for the newbies, strictly speaking you'd need the Gen 5 shock along with new link plates. The Dog bone isn't essential but desirable. The link plate options are the OEM Gen 5 link plates, custom ones from ukzx10r or off the shelf plates from MSS or similar race part companies.

I only chose the Gen 5 route because I'm all in for less than the cost of a rebuild and when it comes time to refresh the BFRC, it seems like a better starting place for a re-valve due to the superior technology and aesthetics of the shock.

If anybody's still looking, now's a great time to make offers on eBay for an OEM BFRC. There are a lot more auctions posted now than there were 4-5 months ago. Furthermore, the asking prices have dropped as I see the same listings from last year still on ebay today, only with lower prices.

I bought mine on Ebay (with an offer) back in early January for a reasonable price. All, and I mean all of the current listings are over priced even today. Out of respect for current sellers, I'm not going to post what I paid but if you're a buyer, PM me and I'll let you know what I got mine for and what I saw others selling for. I've been watching these shocks since the Gen 5 first came out.

Cheers

MiltownMilton If I don't owe the tax man anything this year and end up with a decent return, I'll be getting an Ohlins and letting go of my 400 mile stocker off my 2016. I'll let ya know in a few weeks when I get my return back. My accountant says she's a week or two out from getting to me so pm me in a week or two if you want to line something up.

Porschenut 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.
