New tire, Brocks clutch mod and a new drag shock ...




Where did you get your drag shock from Ricky?


It was on my 2009 championship winning Supersport ZX14. My litz shock will do the same thing when I get it back for 1/3rd the price.

No, but Litz can dial in the shock for you weight, wheelbase, power, ect. where you don't need all the fancy adjustment, it will be very close and you will just have to fine tune it.

Well Jesse got a litz shock from a well known racer off his winning SS bike . If the shock was so damn good why did he sell it to Jesse ?. I will not name him so don't ask .. The shock was a no good .. It had one setting ...STIFF .... This shock was revalved for Jesses weight and was nothing more than a pogo stick .. I will not buy one ..

Do you think you are bottoming out the shock?

No not even close .. I think it needs a slower rebound ..Even with the rebound set as far as it can go it comes back up to quick .. This worked great on my old zx14 but with the extra power of the new zx14r it doesn't .. The bike simply over powers the stock shock valving ..

It should because other than the color of the shock the look just alike ..

Few times I've watched Lee he is nowhere near bottoming out. The new 14r does not squat near as much as his other bikes did.

Guess i need to order a drag shock real soon !! I just have a hard time paying out 2k for a shock ... I'm going to need some kind of edge to get my ETs lower because we just don't have the air here in FL that they have up north ..

Looks like pump gas works better than MR12 ... MR12 might work with a tune but not just pouring it in with no tune ..




I get 1.28- 1.29 60ft on my 14 sitting at 66in with only a $150 revalved shock!! If you want to get the same let me know Lee and I'll give you his number
