Blast! It ended an hour ago. It looked like this though.

I'm reading more about it and from what I can tell is that if the reservoir is angled up then it won't fit without cutting the battery box. If it's at a 90 deg angle, she'll fit right in there. Is that right?

I have def noticed the "pogo stick" reaction of the stock shock. It doesn't make cornering fun here in Bmore. That's why I'm looking into it a little.

Would putting a shock with 10K miles on it be worth it anyway?

Re: ***** NEW Official Maryland Thread *****

You are correct. That one would have required some creative modification of the battery box. You want the one with the res on the 90 deg angle.

10k is just getting broken in.

Thank you sir. I'll keep an eye out for an 06-07 shock. Should be a fun project. When's the next maintenance day anyway? I could host one, if you guys don't mind working in an alley. We could grill some burgers and shoot rats while we're at it.

No problem man. I think JBS is thinking of having one in April. Just waiting on the weather to warm up a bit.

Yea, just emailed a guy who is selling one for around $100 so we will see. Still need to get the bike out of winter storage and get her back on the road again. Hard to do with snow in the forecast though. Come on spring!!!
If you don't get it or get it and don't like it, I'll be happy to take it for around $100.

Even with the modified stock seat riding over an hour straight causes me some discomfort.
