does anyone have any suggestions or know of shocks that will fit an AMP B5? I have already got a Risse Genesis on, and while it is ok, it does seem to top out badly (unless I run a lot of sag) and the shock always seems to leak oil (it has been back for a service at Risse, but hasn't really improved things). I'm not knocking the shock as such, it's been pretty good and was an improvement from the OE one, but I just wonder if anyone has had any luck finding a more modern one that just works a bit better.

The FOX F23 is a realy fine damper and can be found to a nice price used, you can use any brand the only thing you have to remember that´s the messurering of your old damper so size are the same.
