+1 GSXR is good if you want to lower the bike. On a 1st gen you'll have to lower the forks in the triple about an inch to compensate and maintain stock trail. With new springs/oil and the cheap-o emulators I've not have any problems with this severe a drop. Stock you'd probably had issues though.GSXR shock is too short. But could be good for those wanting to lower their bikes.
The ZX-14 shock is too big for all but the heaviest riders, and I'm talking 250lbs+. It's still overkill if you ride with a passenger at all times.my sv came with zx-14 rear shock, previous owner uprgaded it... Is there any advantage to having this at all? He was a bit bigger (which was his reasoning behind replacing it), but I'm only 175 lbs, and new to bikes, so I know little about suspension... saw this thread and thought I'd ask.
Are you asking if you should revert the ZX10 back to the stock shock? If the ZX10 shock is set up properly for your weight, it will be better than the stock shock in most aspects.I'm a new rider too and the bike I have has the ZX-10 shock. I still have the stock one, and am about 6'3", 180ish (call it 185). I love the riding position as is. Worth swapping out?
