So what's so bad about the 919 stock rear shock?
The 919 comes stock with a short travel, remote reservoir, adjustable shock.
1st, is it rebuildable / revalveable
Would rebuilding it make it much better? I've heard before that's some shocks just don't last very long, after 10K miles, they just don't perform as they should.
Is it an issue of not being adjustable enough? Does it adjust preload and rebound?
Is it an issue of it being setup for a certain weight/riding style whereas the aftermarket would be custom for your needs?
I see where people are suggesting the Ohlins, but that's a pretty big investment. I saw where they had electronic control, is that so you can go up to the twisties and change the settings, then change them back for the ride home?
