still looking to see what would make a good swap. the bike is up there in weight, so i don't know if a rear shock from another bike will help any. still looking to i'll report back. also going to post the question up on my old furum, maybe some one there may want to throw their two cents in. . . considering the activity here is very light.
contact the people at ricor shock and they are looking into whether their 43 mm imitator will work on the fz. if it does, i'm looking to see if they'll offer discount as they did w.the sv's. i put them on my sv and it improved the front a lot, for little out of pocket.
