Expect to do some basic maintenance on any unit purchased through eBay or other online venue.

  • Penske 8987 “Triple Clicker” Racing Shock : Penske Racing Shocks have captured countless professional and amateur road racing titles, and are used by factory riders & privateers alike. This shock is the top-of-the-line model produced by Penske, providing riders, racers, and suspension tuners the ultimate in flexibility, tuneability, and control, and performance. The Penske 8987 features 25 clicks of low speed compression adjustment and 17 clicks of high speed, yielding an incredibly fine degree of control, as well as amazing levels of traction and feedback.
