        Funny, I once had a stock shock that had been rebuilt by Lindemann, they'd added a port for recharging it. Think I gave it to Eileen at one point.
        '89 Hawk a.k.a. The RallyHawk (my son's now!) | '89 Hawk a.k.a. The Deuce | Spare Parts/Dented Learner Bike | '13 Tacoma | '69 Falcon (currently getting reassembled! )

        I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

          Yeah, noticed the rebuild stock shocks. Had no idea that was an option that ppl pursued.

            Being able to ride from point A to Point B does not mean you have skills.

              I just sent Jamie a FOX Twin Clicker a few weeks ago. He does all my stuff.

                Thanks, guys. I remember this shop when I owned the VFR. Will check him out as well.

                    Thank you.

                    Question for everyone in the know, what makes one place better than the other? Assuming product knowledge, materials used, customer service, etc. are all equal.
                    I mean, does a VFR specialist differ from a Tuono specialist, and a Hawk specialist? Or, as long as the place is an expert in suspension, the type of motorcycle the part goes on is more or less irrelevant?

                      suspension101.com I trust them because thats where Ken gets all of shocks and forks get rebuilt and cost is reasonable

                        Experience matters.Lots of guys do suspension...as you can see..I use Traxxion. Lindeman was the Fox guy. Both will have done Hawk shocks before.The VFR guy? Hord.Buy a Penske.
                        JD set my buddie's VFR up perfectly.Shock and a fork build.

                            Is that common?
                            My fox was bought from a reputable member here, with a one year old rebuild by the time I bought it. Saw basically no use in my possession. Now leaking.
