Anyone ID a Penske?

Can anyone tell me what model Penske shock this is (eg. 8900 vs 8100 series)??





I appreciate any help!

Maybe a mod can change the title of this post since I just bought the shock.


So my collection of suspension upgrades continues to grow, I now have RaceTech gold valve emulators, a Penske shock (model TBD, but I paid about what used twin-clickers are going for) with a Hyperco spring, and I'll order Sonic springs and heavier fork oil sometime in the next month since I probably won't do any of the work until the riding season is done.

Nah, it's all good Gas. I think only SV guys get excited by a Penske b/c the difference is so huge from our stocker. Nobody else appreciates it as much

The chain is great, I've been checking the tension after every ride just to be sure everything looks good. I'm really liking the gearing change a lot, I'm going to do a review/writeup on it once I get a few more miles on it.
