Well then my 05/06 was more worn out than I thought because it was soft as shit. I had to add a ton of preload to get the sag where it needed to be. The 09 shock needed no adjustment.

x2. Plus the 09s are a little lighter from what my Ohlins guy told me.

Yeah my bad, I didn't look up the specs, I just went by how they felt. Either way, the 09 was well worth the $55. I've even heard people say they like the 07/08 shocks better than the 09. The biggest thing is that you get a shock that's not worn out.

Well...mine's a 2012 shock with ~200 miles...so, it's definitely not worn out. And I only weigh about 180

nice one guys thanx for the replies, i got a 08 rear shock,heard the 07/08/09 are exactly the same... went straight on no hassle, bike felt harder to tip into corners, but i did have everything set on fairly hard and i removed the 6mm spacer that kawi put on top of the shock so's to get my feet down a bit better as im a short arse.. so ive put the 6mm spacer back on and softened the shock a little, waiting to find out how she feels now just waiting on my new hotbodies tinted screen coming...
