    what is the real story on 900rr shock?

    So, it works great, it scary bad, its mediocre. what is the real story. Also what about a similar shock from a CBR600f3 or anything else for that matter.
    whatsoever your hand should find to do, do it gladly, because there is no work, love, knowledge, or wisdom in the grave...

      Better than stock: stiffer, higher ride height. But the damping rates are way off, so it's far from perfect. Worth a hundred or so bucks? Sure. But an aftermarket Hawk shock will be superior.

        I installed the 900RR shock for the specific reason of a higher rear ride height (monster seat conversion). I had an Eibach installed which made a ride difference between the swap of the Hawk spring on to the CBR shock. It still rides a little stiff, but it is a cheaper alternative if you want height with semi-aggresive street riding. Playing with the adjusters does seem to make a little of a difference. I have no track here for racing, so for me I see no need for the more expensive shock.
