Anyone alter or replace the rear shock on their 900? If so, what did you replace it with, where did you get it and how did it feel after the fact???

When new I felt like I was hitting hard in the rear, checked it and found the rear shock is set at Factory for an Avg 150lb rider--set my rear shock up to 5 and it feels sweet for me (1up)---if a lot of 2up riding is possible you might try 6---if you have not adjusted the shock try it before replacing

I had reset it to 5 and like you said, good for solo, so I guess I'll just knock it up to the last notch. I did find an air shock for about $795...ouch ($200 more for one adjustable on the fly)!!!
