Was wondering if anyone put a jackpot shock on a vegas as its about a inch shorter...thinking about getting a progressive shock (short) but have a jackpot shock i got a good deal on a few years back that has a few thousand miles on it. Heard mixed reviews on links, plus this shock is only almost a inch shorter and not 1.5 like most links...any feedback would be great.

Swap it out and tell us what"you" think.

I put a lowering link on mine and preloaded the spring a little to raise it up a touch for a little bit. I took the link out and left the spring loaded. I prefer the ground clearance over both heals on the ground.

It will work. But please, dont waste your hard earned $$ on that garbage progressive shock, they really arent much better than stock shocks. If you really want to transform the way your bike rides/handles, we can set up a Penske shock for YOUR rider weight. It also is a fully rebuildable unit and the lower clevice is adjustable so you can change your ride height.

Sometimes you get what you pay for...
The Penske gives you a plusher ride over small road irregularities, as initial movement is softer, and when you start to push it into it's travel more, it firms up nicely and the dampening is smooth.

I haven't changed my shock from stock, as I'm happy with the way it works (works better the harder you work it) but the guys I know who did the Penske conversion are very pleased with it.
