Shock upgrade suggestion

Anyone upgraded the rear suspension on their FZ6? Looking for ideas on what might fit besides the super expensive Penske option.

I put a F4i rear shock on mine. I modified the mounts and also had to to some grinding on the frame around the lower mount.
The F4i shock has the correct spring rate and is identical in height as the pathetic shock that came the bike.

I also resprung the front forks and installed the racetech cartridge emulators. I also put on a fork brace I bought from China for $10 that was a perfect fit.

Do both of these and your FZ6 with amaze you.

Replaceing the springs

What or how did you pick the spring size, I've been running all over the webs looking for an answer.
