gen 4 Race- Tech shock

I just got to say this is one of the best shocks ive had on a bike. . Racetech does not make one for the 2011+ but i had them build me a custom shock. Only modification was to my links. I had to grind a little material away. But sooo. Worth it. I just had to post this because i went through hell trying to find a shock that was available without waiting a month

I contemplated using their cartridge kit and rear shock for my gen 4 because I really like how it works on my K8 1000.

If they don't make this for the 2011+, then why post how good it is on the gen 4 2011+ forum?

disregard.. After reading it three times I understand what you implied... They don't make it for the gen 4 (as in you can go online and order it), but they can do it.. and it's worth while!

thanks!

I had them rebuild stock shock with gold valves and I thought it was a major improvement.

Your saying they built your a shock from the ground up?

Or they rebuilt your stock shock?

I've had them rebuild stock units before, been satisfied with the shock except for the inability to adjust ride height.
