Mark, as I'm certain you are aware, the Gen 3 shock comes with a stiffer spring then Gen 1 or 2. The Gen 3 shock we put into Festar's bike made a bit of difference, he could run on the soft setting even when loaded. As I recall the 15 and later shocks have an even stiffer spring set.wheatonFJR wrote: ↑Fri Dec 21, 2018 11:59 amKevin, with my shock at 45K miles now, I'm thinking of getting it replaced. I was thinking of doing Traxxion...but for the $328, the stock shock...which actually does reasonably well, sounds like the right way to go. Mebbe I will just replace the fork springs and change the fluid as well!
Thanks for sharing, I think you just saved me a shit ton of $$, mebbe with the money saved I can come out and visit Montana.
When we were looking for a rear shock to get Festar back on the road the 15 and 16 shocks were less expensive than the 13 as I recall.
