it cracks me up when people say they hate this or love those when talking about shock manufacturers...

in realality all of the after market shock are almost the same. it's just who you get set them up is what realy makes a difference.

Figuring shocks out, what they are suppost to do while moving up & down & how they work & what spring does what is as hard a job as trying to explain to somebody how a two stroke pipe works.

Once you realy know what a shock does when its working & how to adjust it, you then realize you will never have enough money to afford the ones that will provide the ride your looking for.

There can or could be a single shock that would provide the type of ride you could use but no company would ever produce it for fear of only selling one shock to you.

Its the whole world skeem of things in this world, looking for the best you can find & BROKE all the time trying to have it.
Right or wrong.

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.

Nuts. Really? I got my Elkas used, and have NOT been nice to them since! And I haven't seen drop one (knocking on wood). Guess I should keep a close eye out for it?

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.
