7. RF900 Rear Shock Upgrade- (GSXR1000 K8)


I believe it's off a GSXR1000 K8 (which would make it 10 years younger than the RF 900) plus it has an upgraded spring from LRS-MECH (which is only down the road from me). Having the load adjuster built into the shock also helps with the reduced space in the new subframe and tail swap, which is streamlined but a bit cramped.   135 136 137   It fits! (phew) Had me worried there for a second - but I can run a piece of card between the spring and swing arm when it's fully extended. 140 139 143
