It is of interest to note that the 465 replacement for both Wee & Vee are the same shock, there is no difference. A 1" lowered shock is available too. Most (90%) of my riding is two up with my wife and luggage, for a combined weight of 320 - 360lbs. I was always bottoming out on rough roads, and front fork dive was terrible under hard breaking. The new shock is just so much plusher, yet firmer too. We ride with another couple who have a Vee, and switch bikes from time to time, anyone who has done this knows how much richer, and taut the Vee suspension feels in comparison to the Wee, you right away can tell Suzuki has invested more bucks into it by the way it soaks up bumps and pot holes in the road. Now, with my new suspension, by comparison, my Wee feels like the Vee, and his Vee feels lacking. I know a lot of guys want to be able to continually adjust the settings, but many don't, myself included, so this works for me. This shock is a great upgrade, price wise too. Yes the wrench is included.
