As I am waiting for the new thermostat, to finish the cooling system, another issue
popped up, and thought i would ask for an opinion. This bike does not have a compressor, but an air tank, with a value stem. It was not holding air to the rear shocks, so i replaced the valve stem, and tightened, still not holding air. which leads me to eventually check the hoses to the shocks, and the culprit, probably the shocks themselves. So here are the questions.
1. are there rebuild kits for the factory shocks and are they worthwhile? Where would you find them?
2. What about an aftermarket, bolt in, non air shock, and forget that all together?
And where would you find them?
opinions please, I am sure someone has dealt with this before.
I hear those bad reports on progressives by the way, so what about other companies?
