Like the Penske rear shock option for the FZ-09 and thinking about the piggyback reservoir over the remote. Really hate how the remote reservoir looks on the bike pictures I have seen thus far. What is do you think, piggyback, remote reservoir, or internal reservoir?

Has anyone successfully installed a piggyback Penske in an 09? Not much room there. Also could be hard to get to the adjustor? I wouldn't want to be the first to try it lol.

Remote can be adjusted by reaching down and twisting while riding, and it reminds me of the trick setup back in the day with the FZR and FJ aftermarket shocks.

You need something like this, but with the reservoir protruding at the correct angle so that it sits between the rear fender and under tail. The problem is getting the manufacturer to mill it out for you. Then it has to be worthwhile for them to design and build it. Its easier and less expensive to do a remote reservoir.
