Bandit 1200 Rear shock VS GSXR1000 rear shock


Recommended Posts

Gents,

 

15 years ago I modified my GS1000, I made a swingarm in it from a Bandit, made it monoshock with the Bandit shock.

 

Lately I'm trying to improve the suspension.

I ordered a rear shock from a GSXR because it's fully adjustable, but apparently I didn't look properly, t doesn't fit...

I can make it fit, but that involves a lot of work. Move the battery and ignition module..

 

My question, is it worth to make the shock fit? Is it much better then the Bandit shock?

 

Thanks

Is the GSXR spring much stiffer then the Bandit one?

It is a bit but you get comp and rebound damping as well as fully adjustable preload 

I’m 18 atone and needed a slightly stiffer spring to get 25 mm of sag:tu:tu

Thanks.

I bought it because it's fully adjustable. Of to work to make some dogbones. I'll see today how it goes / what it does..
