I"ve searched all over looking for an assembled image and some kind of write-up and all I find are either exploded diagrams or ebay parts. A clear pic of the shock and linkage connected to the frame and swingarm of anything from a ZX900 to ZX14 will probably do.

This might help. It is for ZX14R.

I took some bad advice from the COG forum (that doesn't send me the registration activation email) about lowering the ZG1000 with a ZZR1100 shock. Well the shock arrived and it's the same length! The rocker linkage is different. Blew $45. My income has dropped 30% since the COVID economy and don't have the funds for Soupy's $200 linkage. Oh well, will just live with it. At least the ZZR shock has a sportier spring. Did discover the ZG1200 front springs fit and stiffen the front so now I don't have to air up either the front or back.

Pic of ZG1000 fork spring on bottom, ZG1200 on top. Wire is heavier gauge.

Well that sucks. But maybe best in the long run. Lowering a bike is always a compromise as it alters steering geometry and requires shortening the side stand.
