I just put in a GSX750 shock and it is amazingly better than mine. The compression and rebound with bumps is soo much better than stock. People keep saying get penske or ohlins but why? Sure adjustability is nice to have but are they that much better than the GSX shock to pay 20 times for it. For racers, i understand because adjustable allows them to setup for specific conditions on a track but for us?

Well, that may be a stretch for such a general statement, sort of depends on what the meaning of "need" is. Ask someone who has had a stock gixxer swap in shock and then upgraded to something better if they regret doing the upgrade.

one day, I'll find out. But not anytime soon will I spend $700 on a shock. Gotta pay the bike off first.
