 Yes I do. Had it on the '01.
 Have to look in the box to make sure all is there.

 Ok and sorry for the delay.
 Yes I still have it including the linkage and fasteners.
 I don't recall the mileage on it but was a new take off when I got it. I will estimate it at 40K miles still working fine.
 Except it did not have enuf rebound dampening for me. However I am nearly 300# with riding gear. Anyone 200# or less would fine it acceptable.
 If you are still interested then reply.

When I saw this post I thought that anyone having this sitting in a box was a long shot  :o
Does this mod lower the bike?  I am in the vertically challenge category  ;D

Gives decent rear suspension, way better than the OEM shock. Handles better, more comfy.

Dan,
    If this shock is still available, let me know. I would like to mate it with a ZX9 shock I have, and install it on my 2006 Concours. Please PM me with the details, and price. Thanks!

Thanks, Dan! PM returned. I notice you have the linkage and rocker in there also, do you use that along with the shock, and is it a Concours linkage, or the ZZR1200 linkage?

 First three including pm's  did not follow thru with the purchase.
 I am selling ZZR shock ready to bolt on 'cheap'... IMO.
 I have a new take off C14 shock I have procrastinated to put on the ZGRX.

Got the shock put together today, spring back on and the ZX9 shock now has a remote preload adjuster and a ZZR1200 spring on it! I will see about installing it on the '06 C10 here soon... :)

Yeah I followed your lead, Woody! I haven't changed the shock oil or anything, and I noticed that your shock has the remote reservoir hose on the same side as the preload adjuster. Mine is routed to the opposite side of the preload adjuster. Was that necessary to get it mounted without interference on the left side of the top mount? Or was it just the way you routed the remote reservoir? Do you think it will be ok with the stock fluid and pressure in the ZX9 shock? Eventually, I could send it to Jamie Daugherty and have him revalve and rebuild the shock, but I think I will try it this way first to see how it performs. I got the wife a 2015 Can Am Spyder RSS for her birthday, so I will be riding solo for the most part when we travel. Let me know what you think!

Zzr1200 shock raises the rear by about 1/2".
Until you sit on the bike. The spring is too soft for the C10 geometry on the unitrac and it will sag more than that half an inch. Good shock. Weak spring. You will have to turn your preload all the way up
Normally aspirated engines have perpetual turbo lag

Well I have had the ZZR1200 shock on my C10 for about 7 years / 100k miles now.
I run it at 3/5 preload and #2 damping and I weigh 360lbs.
Have done 600 miles in a day with a 220lb pillion and it coped fine, but I did up the preload to 4.5/5.
With the OEM shock I would drag the centrestand on bumpy roads 2 up but never happened with the ZZR shock.
I have a spare in storage for when this one gives out.
