Re: What suspension do you have?

On or 2011 bikes we use RaceTech 25 mil cartridges with their extender kit up front and their shock out back. Very good results.

Re: What suspension do you have?

For those of you that are looking for a great rear shock that will fit 08-12 R6 check out the JRI's I know they have a couple of take off's that have been serviced and are ready to go with your correct spring for your weight. For short money compaired to a new one.

JRi refurbished motorcycle shocks are now available! These shocks are totally rebuilt and updated. Each shock has very little run time. Get yours before they run out!!!
2008-2012 YZFR6, Triple Adjustable, Used 1 season, $775.00ea ONLY 2 LEFT!!!


Give Tim Godshall call at JRI 704-660-8346

THis is a STEAL.. the JRi shocks are awesome. I sold my Ohlins TTX shocks after trying these. WAY lighter that the Ohlins or Penske shocks too. Like way lighter. And FYI?? I'm a Jri "support" rider and paid more than $775 each for the 2 shocks i have.. just saying. That is a smokin deal on the shock that is TAKING OVER roadracing.

I have heard a lot of good things about JRi lately. Same with KTech. Seems that Ktech is a smidge more popular out on this coast at the moment though. And lighter suspension parts? YES PLEASE.

Been watching these for a little while. I'd love to tune on one, or better yet ride on one. Hardracing is running a sale on them right now. I'd do one even over the stuff I sell. But I'm too darn broke these days being a new grandpa and all.

holding the ttx ohlins in one hand, and the JRi in the other, it was simply silly how much lighter the JRi felt.

I have all stock now and got maxima 10w in the forks back in October. I still haven't rode it around to see the difference it had from the 4 year old over 20,000 miles stock fork oil.............

The rear shock still has the old oil in it to I think. Of course I've never ridden at a track yet so it wasn't a big deal just cruising around on the streets.

Terry, if you see this, I've been meaning to ask but keep forgetting, how dirty was the old fork oil?
