16+ XSR900 Penske 8983 ‘Double Clicker’


SKU: N/A Category: Tags: , ,


It’s no secret that Yamaha spent the bulk of their R&D budget on that stonking 847cc triple.  Unfortunately, that meant pennies needed to be pinched somewhere.  That somewhere is in the suspension.  There is no compression adjustment, and the rebound damping is lacking, even when compared to the FZ-09.  Stoltec Moto teamed with Penske to develop shock solutions befitting of an otherwise amazing motorcycle.

This is Penske’s most popular motorcycle shock. Double adjustment gives separate adjustment of both low speed compression and rebound damping, so you gain the ability to control squat and bump compliance to suit your riding style.  Increased low speed compression damping (helps) keep the front end planted under hard acceleration while the high speed compression has been specifically tuned for road riding.  Increased rebound damping means the days of getting bucked out of your seat are a thing of the past!
