[B]Zookmor recently just sold a Penske shock in the for sale section that I didn't even know existed for the 919. It was a Penske 8900E series sport shock. This shock is basically a custom made shock and a stripped down version of the Double/triple clicker Penske 8983 ---- The 8900E doesn't have a remote compression cylinder.....but does have custom damping, a custom spring, compression, rebound, spring pre-load, and a ride height adjustment. The interesting thing that I found out...... its the SAME shock body/internals as the 8983.... you can also send a 8900E in later to Penske and have the remote compression cylinder added later. (or even converted to a triple clicker for that matter)
Thanks for the info and the link
I'm the one who ended up with Zookmor's Penske.
Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to get it mounted.
I had a lot of stuff on my plate shortly after I received it and haven't had a chance to properly get it set up & installed. I'm currently devoting a lot of ride time to finishing my garage, re-seeding my lawn, & trying to work in an exercise routine to loose a few lbs. In all reality, this is probably going to be a winter project for me - you know, a reason to enjoy my newly finished man cave of a garage.
For those interested in the deal, Zookmor did send me a couple photos indicating a slight alteration to the frame that I'm told is necessary to make it fit:
(that's the stock shock in the pic)
It's a slight alteration that can be done with a dremel tool. I started tearing my bike down to do the procedure but ran out of time & energy.
I found it to be a bit of a tight space but it's obviously do-able.
Now that I know it has potential for upgrading, I just might look into it before I try to install it... I've got all winter to tinker with it.
