FS: Penske 8983 Remote Reservoir Shock Comp/Rebnd Adj

What we got here is an unidentified shocking object....
Well kinda....
Its a Penske ...prob the 8983 series with the remote reservoir & 25 click compression... 30 click rebound damping
I cant verify the miles...hours...or bike fitment...other than to say it looks similar to an SV650 or FJR shock Penske has listed on their site.... Mainly hose length & orientation.

Here are all the measurements I took from the shock & spring....

Outer Spring Dia 3.35"
Inner Spring Dia 2.25"
Spring Free Length 6"
Spring Winding Dia .5"
Spring #s C964 850 -84? 850 lbs ins?

Shock Assy Length 13.2" appx ctr/ctr
Upper Sleeve Length 40mm
Sleeve Inner Dia for 10mm bolt
Lower Clevis width 1" collar/collar
Lower Clevis Bolt Size 10mm
Shock body Length 6"
Shock Rod length 2.15-20" body/snubber
Hose length 3.9" body/body

For comparison...a stock Super Tenere spring winding is appx .510 so an FJR should be the same or larger.... This shock could be for an 01-05 FZ1 instead.... Your call

$450 ..NO LEAKING FLUID

That is a bargain for a Penske. I have been running them since 2004 or so, never an issue with them. GLWS. If it fits a Gixxer 750 I will buy it right now. But it looks a little short on reservoir hose.

I just can't use it, I have an older version of it. But that is an excellent price for a Penske, I wish you good luck with the sale sir. I don't think folks really understand how much better a quality rear shock can improve both the handling and comfort on a scooter.
