ID:	369185 I think the rear shock is going to need revalving for the road, and possibly the track, it was hard on the tires.

    With the poorly valved sach shock the tire struggled for grip getting out of the tight corners. Well the shock has been re-valved new oil and gas pressure, and oh boy what a transformation. The guy who fixed it is one smart cookie when it comes to suspension. The shock wasn't over damped, it was under damped, and blowing through the shim stack causing the shock to bottom out, and feeling like it was harsh. But now it just soaks up everything in the road. $250, best money I've ever spent on a bike.
