Penske’s 8983 double adjustable rear shock is now available for the Aprilia RS 660 with a piggyback reservoir.
Every Penske 8983 RS660 rear shock is hand built in the USA to our specifications and includes a spring matched to the customer taking into consideration the motorcycle, rider weight, and rider preferences.
The 8983 RS660 rear shock features a remote reservoir damper and low speed compression, rebound, ride height, and preload adjustments. The 8983’s design also allows for fast and easy spring changes without the use of a spring compressor or any special tools.
Based on the ever popular and highly successful 8100 series, the 8983 provides new dimensions of adjustability and versatility to the professional racer and the high-end aftermarket customer. Its modular design allows the use of piggybacks where remote versions are not desirable or feasible. The New compression adjuster features a new adjustable parabolic needle bleed bypass of a conventional shim stack and piston carried over from the top of the line 8700 series dampers. This results in 16 clicks of adjustment with enhanced linear steps between settings.
The new 8983 shock sets the standard in double-adjustable shock absorbers in terms of performance, quality, and value.
Once you place an order, you will receive an email inquiring about your motorcycle, rider weight, and riding preference. Each shock will ship with initial settings that should work well for you, however you may want to work with a local suspension tuner to optimize your suspension’s performance according the track and your riding style.
