It is a used Penske shock from a Stelvio.  Not sure of the mileage on it but I will mount it and see how it feels.  If it needs rebuilding Traxxion Dynamics in Atlanta will do it complete for $200, still a deal.  A double clicker which is more than I know what to do with.

Super.

Curious as to your views after mounting it ... and you figure it out. Very Happy

I will post up after getting it mounted. My only problem right now is not being able to ride until June . I plan on mounting it this Saturday and trying to set sag

By June I hope to have AK20 cartridges installed in the forks

Jerry, since Easter is still a ways off, it must be from the pre-Easter bunny. Imagine your surprise when the real Easter bunny brings the AK20 cartridges!

Jerry,

You’ll be riding on a Cadillac suspension. Let me know if you need help wrenching on it. Could come over tomorrow.

Thanks John but I installed the shock today, I also mounted a rear Pilot Road 5 and put on the carbon fiber rear hugger.

It was a small PITA to get it installed but that was user error they way I set things up, but I finally got ur dun LOL

I can tell I a sitting higher. I measured the center to center disatance and on the Penske it was 1/2" longer but it feels higher than that. I have not even begun setting the suspension but will get to that before June. I also plan on taking the forks off while at it change the front tire.

Here are a couple of pictures of it and the hugger mounted
