I have been on the prowl for a zx6 or zx10 shock for the bike and I came across this thing.
Apparently it came of a zx7. My research shows the zx7 shock measures 350mm but this one measures 330mm.

Are these things any good or should I keep looking?

Hi,

While it does have the preload adjuster it does not have any comp adjustment and who knows what valving is inside. Keep in mind you want to find something that has the same shaft travel as well as c to c. Just because it has the same or close to the same c to c does not make it a good candidate for use as a donor.

I would use a dead Dingo's hind leg for a shock before I would use that Sachs.

That is what I thought, I spent a bit of time on google and could hardly find anything so they mustn't be very popular.
I don't know any other specs for it, and tbh I am new to this suspension stuff so I will give it a miss.

Thanks for the input

A buddy of mine raced a Puch back in the day and when it kicked him off in the woops, we teased him with "How's that Sucks shock working out for you?" or "Looks like you got Saxed."
