So I've done a decent bit of googling today into what'll go into the bike, (what can be thrown straight in and what will need a bit of work first). I'm tossing up between $500 odd for an aftermarket shock, or throwing out $150-$250 for something fancy like a gsxr or gsx1100 shock, but there's too many bits of information being thrown at me. I'm fairly sure that my grasp of preload, rebound and compression are fine (sag, how much it springs back and dive, respectively). What I don't know, though, is what the advantage of a remote (if any) reservoir, and if there's anything to avoid when mounting. Also, is there anything to look out for when buying a used shock? What's involved in a full rebuild of a shock, and is it likely to be pricey?
