If you are using a Kawi ZX-6RR shock and notice a very harsh ride here is why.

I installed one in stock condition and it beat the crap out of me. At my 180 pound riding weight the valving is way too stiff and the spring is too.

Traxxion had overhauled it the first time before they had an FZ09 in their shop to go to school on. Dan told my after this that they now had the correct numbers and to send it back to them for a revalve at no charge.

I just got off the phone with Martin their main tuner. He told me that he revalved it for less compression damping but I still needed a softer spring. Stock is 585 and I needed a 550.

This will solve the problem I was having. If any of you are not happy with your Kawi shock give them a call and they will hook you up.

If you don't think you need a fix but are still peeing blood, then drop me a line. I will make you a smokin deal on a kidney belt.

I had one of them.... give me a day, I can probably find it!

I have you dated. This was the only belt available in 1971
