Have you got another shock ? If not you can pop over and borrow my old sach unit 'til you're sorted, it's sat there doing nowt anyway.

I don't know why all of you think the original(Sachs) shock is rubbish?
Maybe it's just me, in the past had bikes with a lot worse shocks and manage to ride with any conditions but any way, i think that the shock is ok. Not bad not perfect just ok.
Have you seen the shocks that the japs bikes wear. They bring the riders in some really dangerous positions. Never had big trouble because of the shock on the Falco.
Probably with an aftermarket shock i will see a big improvement but i will change it only after a couple of years when it will drop it's performance.
The first thing most riders have to change is the boat anchors we have for exhaust pipes and suffocate the engine.
It would be nice someone that change the shock to write if really is like you ride a different bike or just good become better.

After fitting a Maxton unit, I KNOW the Sachs shock is poor. The bike now goes over bumps without getting all skittish/bouncy and it's a hell of a lot more comfy too
1000+ miles to and from the TT says change the thing.

I can't honestly say, I've ever had the oportunity to ride on the std Sux shock, as I replaced it before I even road out the door, of the dealership witha full blown Ohlins shock. I decided this from reading the problems with the std shock.
But with the Ohlins it is superb. Add Bridgestones and an inch of ride height and it's spectacular. Real point it where you want it, type stuff. An aftermarket shock is just that more supple, compliant etc, and other superlatives. It does make a HUGE difference. Just MHO.

I second that.
