Anyone else rebuilding stock DL650 shocks?

Given that Sasquatch is no longer in business, is there anyone else who can rebuild the stock DL650 shock?

I have a shock that was previously rebuilt by him on my '08 V-Strom 650, but it could use a servicing as well as some valving adjustments and a spring more suited to my weight.

Thanks, I sent them an e-mail. Their prices are pretty high, $180 for just a rebuild but $475 for a revalve/respring. If I'm spending the better part of $500 anyway, I might as well cough up a little more for a two-way adjustable.

i'm guessing most will want at least $400 to do anything worth wild.
why not http://store.ricorshocks.com/product_p/vs650-r-1001.htm

Well again, if I'm going to spend that much, I think I'd rather cough up the extra few hundred and get a two-way adjustable Elka or something.

I had my dl650 shock done by Cogent Dynamics.

Could not be happier, they are located in Western North Carolina. Give Rick a Call.

Thanks for the advice guys. I've tried e-mailing Cognet through their website, but I haven't heard back from them. Everyone else I've e-mailed has been super-responsive though. I'm still waffling between getting a fully adjustable aftermarket shock for ~$1000, or just getting the stock one rebuilt and then also having the money left over for a steering damper. Decisions, decisions . . .

Our Website was hacked a few weeks back and the restored copy was/ is old. the email link goes to a dead spot. The email address that is shown on the site (raceparts@motocd.com" is fine). Folks can call us at (828) 628 9025 also

This is our most busy time of year and I have not been able to address the site issues as we are a smaller company and it is either me or Ken doing the work on our customers equipment. Joyce has been out for the last couple days to be at hew brothers bed side as he fights for his life after a serious cardiac emergency.

Sorry for any inconvenience folks, we are going full speed in the shop and all the normal work is going through at a good turnaround rate (1-2 weeks) . Special projects are taking longer.

We have 2 DL 650 shocks in here right now that are getting rebuild, re-valving and new custom springs. As always our work is Dyno tuned and tested. Cogent Dynamics have been doing this work for over 10 years and our results speak for them selves. We appreciate your business!

Another vote for Rick at Cogent. I've used him several times and am very happy. I've also used him to re-valve big name / high dollar shocks that weren't close to right from the factory.

Indeed. I've used Rick for my DR650 shock rebuild and it's great.
Didn't realize he was doing DL650 shocks too.
