I know some gsxr shocks can be used on our bikes but what other shocks are compatible? Ultimately I would like to put a Penske on and that's probably what I'll end up doing but are there and other track worthy shocks that can be picked up fairly cheap that are say from another bike? I've heard the zx-10 shock would work is this true?

ZX-10R '06-'07 and all ZX-14 shock don't require cutting the battery box.

They are better than stock and are an improvement on the track; they offer a wider range of adjustments and a spring rate that works well in those conditions. But if you are looking to be a lap leader you are going to need a race shock (penske, ohlins) set up for you.

as for which is better: the difference is negligible; ups and downs to both of them.

you wont find anything perfect for under 1k, but the gixxer and zx shocks are a big step up for under 100.
