This shock has been available for awhile now, wondered if anyone has tried one with or without the remote preload.
I can't give you a testimony on the Progressive shock. But, I can give you one on a similar product.Hey bob, no I havn't bought one. The cheapest price I have seen so far for the 465 is at Murphskits. 685.00 with remote and 395.00 without. Seems like a massive amount of money for the remote adjust feature. If I didnt alter my loads so much, I would probably try the non remote one.
I put one on my 2009 just before my trip to South Dakota and Wisconsin this year. I was worried about the lack of a remote preload adjuster but in the end I realized even with the stocker once I set it I just left it alone.This shock has been available for awhile now, wondered if anyone has tried one with or without the remote preload.
I can't comment on a rebuilt shock by Sasquatch on V-Strom or WeeStrom. I can comment on the rebuilt shock and forks Sasquatch did on my FJR. Huge, Huge difference. Because it is winter I have only put about 3,000 miles on the newly rebuilt FJR suspension ... but is a HUGE improvement over what came stock, when I bought the Feejer with 3,167miles on the odometer.We need a shoot out with a rebuilt Susquatch shock
Does the literature that came with the shock tell you what the spring rate is?Just put the remoteless one my SVstrom and have done about 400 miles. It has performed very well on road. Haven`t yet had it off-road, but am expecting good things based on what I have seen so far.
Spring rate for the Progressive Suspension 465 shock (part# 465-5007) is listed as 9.11 kg/mm to 11.16 kg/mm (it's a progressive rate spring...not a single rate spring, so the 'stiffness' increases as the shock compresses.)Does the literature that came with the shock tell you what the spring rate is? I've been trying to find that kind of info on their web site, and they just ain't telling. :headbang:
