There used to be a gent in California who would rebuild the
stock shock using a Race Tech Gold Valve.  He added a
schraeder valve on it but other wise it adjusted the same. 
I still have mine although I've swapped to a now
unobtainable Koni.  I have heard someone bought the Koni
machinery, but I'd have to ask a friend in OZ about that. 
Paul is correct about the ZX9 shock.  One of the years has
the heavier spring that doesn't have to be swapped out.

I've never tried to determine for myself if this is 100%
true.  A used ZX-9R shock (I forget which year but it has
the separate reservoir) is fully rebuildable and is 
> almost a direct bolt-in.  It requires a heavier spring,
which is no big deal to install when your doing the rebuild.
