K-tech rear installed - shocking results

I put in the Ktech Razor shock in over the weekend and took it out for a spin - the bike is transformed! Shocking, right?!
The bike now tracks the line through the corners without any wallowing. Previously bumpy teeth jarring sections that required coasting are now manageable at normal pace with constant throttle.

The results are instantaneous and if you're on the fence about getting a replacement shock for the stock one, just do it - In my opinion it is the best mod you can do and I wish I didn't wait this long to do it.

Oh great, more tempting for me... Christmas is coming though!

Easy self-install and where'd you get it?

Install was easy - the worst part was getting the old shock out and putting new one in takes some wiggling around with the stock exhaust in place. I used an ABBA stand to get the bike up, but you could also do it with couple of jack stands under the pegs (just make sure you support it under the non-folding end).

I got it from Omniracing in Italy - overall very happy with the company and the price:

buy it and make it a very Merry Christmas

I installed my Razor a couple of months ago. I would have liked to say that I was SHOCKED by the results but due to the great comments on this forum (thank you Mike D and others) I knew it would be good. And I was not disappointed.

I should have done it sooner. I just keep dialing it softer and my old bones love it.

I too used a ABBA stand and did not remove the exhaust just loosened it in the back. Not cake but definitely doable even for an accountant!

I just put my order in to purchase the razor R rear shock plus k-tech fork piston kit and k-tech fork springs $2000au installed and set up to ride.
I just canít ride the bike how I want with the stock suspension it just gets out of shape to Much on bumpy roads..
Anyhow just have to wait for all the part to arrive

That's my profession too so I'll be good!

Actually, I've done much worse on my previous cars for sure.

May wait and see if any Black Friday deals show up.

Well, if you find one, give me a shout as I'm long overdue for some comfort mods!
