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?

I remember seeing these put up before, no idea how good they are a few people weighed in hypothetically but I'll toss you the links anyway for completeness sake.

Trying to be smart, one stupid thing at a time.

I have the Penske 8983 Double Adjustable Shock and it is great. This past season riding at several different tracks it performed amazing.

This shock and Traxxion Dynamics Damper Rod Kit for the forks transformed the R3 from an entry level handling sport bike to a serious handling sport bike - I know I've posted this before - it handles better than my S1000RR that cost almost 4 times what I've got into the R3.

I’ve been doing a lot of research and, consistent with your experiences, all of the “double adjustable” shocks seem to get great reviews.

I’m currently leaning toward a double adjustable JRi from computrackboston - but even at the great price of $890 shipped, it’s still super expensive. But I don’t think the shock is a good place to cheap out and try to save $200-$300..

Not only do you want a good shock you need to be able to dial it in to get the best possible performance. Traxxion Dynamics set up my Penske for me and they nailed it. I may adjust it a click or two depending on the conditions but for the most part it came perfectly set up.
