That's a good point Neil. You spend big money on shocks and think they are going to be the best thing since sliced bread. Then they aren't, so you tweak and tweak, and revalve, and revalve, and rebuild. By then you could have bought two or three sets of shocks. I'm surprised at how fast elka seals start leaking. Do all of them leak easily or is it just elka? Could also be my lack of cleaning them thoroughly. Probably gets a little sand in the seal and then starts to leak.
I just realized what you said, how did you get a set of PEPs for 2000.00 dollars.
Two fronts & a rear will set you back 3500.00 retail, that is if Wayne builds them specially for you.
And that aint the half of it, you will need a different valved & springed set for each track you race on + after 2 races the fluid needs changing.
Thank God we run TT, we can get half a season before doing anything to them.
welll i found out i like the shocks they are awesome i dont have to do that after every 2 races im hard on shocks but not that hard. my stock shocks lasted me 6 weeks riding on my track an i have a 10'' high jump and i was jumping it with out a landing (dumbass) lol my frame started hitting the ground, anyway the peps are not going to go bad i dont think im keeping them the hell of the ground lol well its sitting (that helps alot i found out!!!) im most likly going to an indoor track today
