    The reddish nut is the rebound click adjustment.

    Very neat :clap
    Does he have a price yet?
    How about a 2nd hole in the lower shock mount for those of us running lowered suspension? Street riders want good shocks too!

    Looks like you're doing some very nice work. Let us know how it work for you. Looks very cool. Are these rebuilds going to be available to the rest of us?

    No price yet. This is still in the development stage. The clevis is actually threaded, so there is some height adjustment.

    I put the heavier 7.6Kg Eibach spring on the shock, but the rebound damping is easily overcome in the whoops. I'd seriouisly consider the kit and rebuild service.
