Koni are now Ikon.
I've fitted a zx12 shock similar weight bikes but I used some zx6 dog bones
to raise the rear little, not that it was needed, just personnel preference.

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
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

which is no big deal to install when your doing the rebuild.
