I just removed my shock and we are going to rebuild it tomorrow night. He already has a completely new shock for the KLR and some Ducatis. We are going to take pictures of the whole thing. I may need some help posting them.
Sounds cool. How much do you weigh? How are you using the stock spring with any success? Just seem to me that once a soft spring, always a soft spring... Try your new shock with a new spring too, unless you're very light.

Love to see those pix when you take them.
