I have a penske shock from a 2002 SV650 that I am selling. My question is what will it take to make it work? I see a bunch of threads on zx-10 and zx-6 shocks being mounted and they are a popular mod to the sv so I am figuring the penske would work as well with little effort. Is that right?

It is ride height adjustable but at 434mm eye to eye right now. 8789 with remote reservoir. I was going to sell it as I was getting rid of the bike but if it makes more sense to keep it and make a few small mods to it i will do that instead.

Thoughts?

OH BTW hello, I pick up my new bike Saturday from unlimited cycle in PA.

If a zx6 and zx10 shock that swaps into a sv650 and a fz09 fit. What won't a penske that fits a sv650 work?

I don't know. 09 clearances in that area are tight. And there is more than being able to mount the shock, the valving etc needs to be right, not all bikes have the same linkage rate etc.
