after doing some research i plan on going with penske. they are about $200 less than ohlins. after talking to the people at penske the 2 way adjustable 8983 series would work good for the tiger. and if you get the one with a remote reservoir it easy to adjust for different riding styles or a passenger. no reason to go with a higher end shock because the tiger will never be a track bike. the guy that has worked on my bikes for over 20 years swears by penske. he has them on all his race bikes & has won many road race championships over the years.
