Hey Guys,.....I am sure a few of you have installed a Gen 2 rear shock on your Gen 1. My understanding is the Gen 2 has a higher rate spring. I rebuilt my front forks with RaceTech parts and replaced my rear shock with a Gen 2. (2011 with only 130 miles) When I installed the rear shock,.....I noticed the rear suspension was topped out and I did not have any static sag. (static sag=suspension settled on bike's weight alone). I positioned the adjusters almost to the top threads,....before the bike settled in around 25-30mm. After adjusting the compression and rebound,.....the front and rear work equally when jounced. Has anyone had the same experience with a Gen 2 rear shock on a Gen 1? Thanks, Guys!!
