New Rear Suspension

admirably at speed. Sometimes I wish I ordered the next weight down but I'm 240#
and the next lowest is 175#. However Ive yet to bottom out.

Howdy, I've got an '89 PC800 and am in need of a new rear suspension. My rear tire recently rubbed through the back trunk and it's bottoming out a lot. Can anyone suggest the best kind replacement that will support an XXL rider? Thank
