I have called them about that model 465 shock. It is for extended bikes and not really intended for drag racing. It does have better valving because of the 800lb spring . I would think it be better than the stock one any day. They couldnt give me the rebound speed at the time so I never gave that shock another look. It looks very similar to my Penske 8975. And like the Penske, good luck getting to that compression screw.

Have not been able to roadt test but it would appear to be much better than the shock I took off from what I can tell thus far. Lighter as well. At 65 inch, Def what I needed. Due to snow my only test was from Rocking and jumping on it bike. Now will compress and rebound at the same time which was not possible before. Set up was quick and easy. I hope this helps any one who may be looking at the 465 Cheers.

I don't understand something. How can it compress and rebound at the same time?

Ok, Timing of the 2 is much better lol, impossible to get the timing of the two set before. For the doe I was expecting, well Not much. 4 Now my thinking is this is allot of shock for the money. Not the big name brand but I knew that going in. This was the info I was hoping to point out. Not the best with words. My bad.

Not that anyone would look, but it's a nice looking unit.
