THE choice for drag racers and serious street/grudge racers. The 8983 and 8987 AIR Shock is the most versatile and top performing motorcycle shock. Available with a remote or piggyback reservoir, the AIR Shock offers an infinite amount of adjustability options through external adjusters and tuneable air chamber for spring rate (see above graph for spring rate examples).
The Penske Advantage
- Simple External Adjustment Options Include Separate High and Low Speed Compression, Spring Rate
- Infinitely Adjustable Spring Rate
- Finest Metals and Materials Used Reduce Friction and Weight while Increasing Strength and Reliability
- Lighter Weight (4.8-5.5lbs depending on model)
What is the Difference Between High and Low Speed Compression Adjustment: High and low speed damping is determined by the speed at which the shock is moving. For example, high speed bumps can be compared to hitting a curb or a large bump in the road surface. Typically, this is a rider-comfort area of adjustment. Low speed is used for controlling chassis movements, grip, and tire wear. When the bike is in the corner and the chassis is loaded, any slight variation in the track surface would be considered low speed. If a shock can't absorb the variation, the grip would be reduced. In a race environment, the ability to adjust both high and low speed is especially important, where every bit of grip available is critical.
**Note: not all makes or models are available. Check the application chart to see which shock models are available for your bike. If you don't see your bike listed, please contact us. We may be able to take your OEM or existing shock and make a duplicate.**
**All shocks are hand built to order specifications. Please allow a minimum of 10 business days for processing; however lead times may be much longer depending on seasonality. For more information on specific product lead times, or if you require a specific delivery date, please inquire before ordering.**
