Which is the better shock?
When I bought my '89 750, the PO included a Fox shock that possibly needs new seals. I've heard of people swapping in a '03-04 Cbr600RR shock after a spring change.
I don't know the rate of the spring currently on the Fox shock but if it's OK, then from what I've gathered a rebuild may cost about the same as buying the Cbr shock and getting it resprung.
So, I guess what I'm asking is: if both shocks cost the same to fit to my bike, which is a better choice?
