Basically I'm looking for the best street/strip rear shock and I'm just wonder what everyone else is using. I researched the Brock Performance Drag Shock, however if its only meant for track use than its not my best choice. I want to be able to hit the track on Saturday and go for a ride with the mrs sunday :bigthumb: . The bike is going to be on Brock Performance Adjust Links with 12 over/ 70" swingarm. I don't post a lot so please excuse my poor use of grammar, plus I'm posting quickly rather than doing my job ;)

The Brocks shock is perfect solution to what you want because it has such a wide range of adjustment, especially the rebound dampening. Ride height, preload, and compression are all fully adjustable as well. If i remember right, there are 40 clicks of adjustment for the rebound. You can set it very tight for strip to limit the speed of the spring return. This helps with wheel hop and other traction issues. For street you just turn it out 20 clicks or so and it rebounds like a normal shock. You don't need any special tools for the rebound adjuster wheel either.. turns by hand. The Brock's shock is a JRi Double Adjustable Drag Shock, BTW.

i had the old brocks /ohlins on my 2012 and it was so much nicer on the street than the stock shock you wouldn't believe it.

When you fill out the shock form the guys at Brocks will send it with recommend settings. I didn't change the compression between street and track. Did soften the rebound for street riding.

That is the best part about this shock.. It can be adjusted very quickly. You can change sag or make a few compression and rebound adjustments. Main thing to change is going to be rebound, you dont want the back end squatting and staying down while mid-corner lol
