It was terrible even with preload backed all the way soft. Every crack in the road was like a jack hammer to my spine. It even made me grab more throttle on every impact.

The K-tech is plenty for this bike. 3 way adjustable plus ride height adjustable. Have it sprung for your weight.

I have never seen a Wilbers at a racetrack that was on a bike that was in the top 5. K-tech, ohlins, Penske, JRi, yes.

I would not have any problem doing a trackday or a race on this bike with the Razor. K-tech doesn't drop off the quality of their components based on what the item sells for. I've had the DDS on a GSXR and couldn't tell the difference to the Razor on the GSX.

It has 32 clicks rebound 30 clicks compression. Comes with pre load adjuster tool. Ride height is adjustable via a nut at the lower shaft location.

I've had both Wilbers and K-tech and have found the K-tech to be a bit more plush in the first part of the stroke and the Wilbers a little more firm with the settings that come suggested by each manufacturer. Both are top quality products and you wont be disappointed with either. The reason I went with the K-tech over the Wilbers this time was due to price, the location of the shock reservoir and K-tech's recent success in road racing. One point worth noting is the ability to change the length of the shock, I've lengthened my K-tech to raise the rear of the bike and that has transformed the handling of my bike plus given me more ground clearance.
