Being doing a fair bit of looking into shocks recently and Ive decided to go with the Wilbers 641. Theres a thread on it with pictures if you want to have a look. That shock has got a reservoir, but its attached via a braided hose, rather than the piggyback style that youve posted above. If youre set on a piggyback style shock, after speaking to several manufacturers, I found out that the fitting for the their shocks are exactly the same for the Z900 and the Z900RS. With Nitron, the only difference being that the NTR2 shock they sell has got a reservoir on a hose for the Z900 but its piggyback style for the Z900RS. So if you were to order the NTR2 for the Z900RS, it will have the same stroke length, fittings etc, but be the piggyback style youre after. Id question if theres a reason they didnt make it that way for our particular bike though.
