For the result of improvement, was it worth the wait, the money! It took a trained mechanic a few hours to complete the installation. The total installation time could have been reduced to probably one hour, if we did let our mechanic do his work.
When the final bolt was torqued down and everything was buttoned up, we took the Kawasaki Ninja 650R for a ride. Already without any adjustments to the preload and rebound we already left more confident riding the Ninja 650R, with a few tweaks of our trusty mechanic we were doing twisty roads like we could never do before. The modified Kawasaki Ninja 650R can drop his unmodified 650R brothers like a bad habit. And with a good rider a the controls, the modified Kawasaki Ninja 650R squirts from corner to corner quicker than a unmodified Kawasaki Ninja 650R
Retail price here in Thailand is about 12,000 Thai Baht or roughly US$400wow nice how much is it?? whats the review on this?
Honestly it really depends on how you ride. If you just cruise around and never push it chances are you might never find the limits of the stock suspension. But if you do like to push it from time to time you've probably already discovered that the ER6n / Ninja 650R is easily unsettled by rough surfaces in corners.Tony you race your bike on track very often...
As a result,you NEED a more sophisticated rear shock with lot of adjustment.
Would you recomemend this shock to someone that drives 100% on street situations and wants beter ride quality than stock?
I don't believe YSS builds custom shocks, but they do offer different weight springs.question do they have to know your weight before they make it for you or it comes in standard setting? looks promising... whats your review on this tony?
I have already found this Tony.Honestly it really depends on how you ride. If you just cruise around and never push it chances are you might never find the limits of the stock suspension. But if you do like to push it from time to time you've probably already discovered that the ER6n / Ninja 650R is easily unsettled by rough surfaces in corners.
So before you upgrade your suspension you have to ask yourself if you are unhappy with the way the bike rides and handles as it is now?
This part number is for HONDA according to YSS site :Can anyone confirm the part # used on an 09+ ER6? This thread says YSS MZ506-290TR-09. Rep from YSS told me MZ506-285TRL. Seems like an extra $30 for length adjustability is unnecessary. And 290 seems to be right length from what I can find on interwebs.
