i had a guy who knows racing and bikes pretty well (has a 99 gsxr600 trackbike, a 2002 gsxr750 streetbike, and a Repsol HRC prepped 97 NSR250 GP track/street bike
) and he said my setup felt extremely confident, and well proportioned....recommended nothing!!! To my surprise, as ive done nothing to it since i got it....

now im afraid to mess with it!!!!

Well.like the old saying goes..if ain't broke..don't fix it..


If the bike feels good, and behaves in the turns ect..leave it alone..

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yup..it will also raise the rear 1/4" due to the new shaft in it..

Hey your bike might work good now... BUT you dont know what you missing with that shock...
I had the same shock in mine till I got the whole shock to replace it..
My has the same valves and all, but it has a aftermarket body, the one Hammer has is the stock body..

Well The shock has a new shaft that is longer and wider then stock. The valves are different then the stock ones and it is setup for a 175-200 lbs rider. It has a 400lbs spring in it..

The shock will make the bike turn faster, track and hold lines better, and ride smoother.

They are great shocks and last a long time..

If there is something you want to know about it let me know.. My friend is the one who builds them...
