seriously? you don't think it has one? lol.. guys, it's not a shock the size of a steering damper, it's just 30% lighter than an Ohlins or Penske shock.
the size difference of the body is noticeable in this photo. it's smaller. BUT YES, it has a remote res. It's basically a 3/4 scale of the popular ohlins or penske shocks.
If you look around the AMA or local ccs/wera paddock, these shocks are quickly finding favor with many riders/
Not a "good" shock? LOTS of national championships were won on them at this year's CCS Race Of Champions and WERA GNF .
Is Ohlins a good shock? heck yes.. but so is the JRi , and it weighs considerably less. That was the original posters question right?? how to shed weight?? well, here is a very good way to do it.
If you are gonna get an aftermarket shock anyway, why not consider a shock that is as good as an Ohlins but weighs 30% less??
The guys that started JRi spun have decades of experience from Penske and Fox shock companies .. so they know somthing about shocks. The JRi company got it's start in nascar, and half the cars/trucks in nascar are on jri shocks. They only recently ventured into motorcycles, but are quickly gaining favor with riders.
here is some info on the company if interested https://www.facebook.com/JRiShocks?fref=ts
