Thanks for the link. Does that one require any additional mods or is it just a straight swap out of the old shock? I remember seeing one where you had to modify the battery box or something.
EDIT: Sorry meant to quote jbluetooth regarding the race spec light shock.

I’ve been researching Shock upgrade options for my R3. Listed below is a quick listing of pricing and features for the shocks I know of. I’m currently leaning toward the Ohlins because of the adjustability, look (love the reservoir mounting bracket), ease of resale appeal, and the fact that I have $35 in points at Webike Japan.
If I was being logical, I bet that Jesse’s Race spec lite would perform the best.
Have I missed any?
This is a nice summary listing! One thing not mentioned though is the WEIGHT of each shock. I suspect all of them are likely lighter weight than the cheap OEM shock, but I would really appreciate seeing some specific weights, since I am continuing my R3's weight reduction program, and one item on the checklist for each potential mod is weight.
Anyone got at least 1 or more of the weights?
