I'm using those exact same shocks on my KD80 project here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=884627



I haven't ridden with them yet but they seem pretty stiffly sprung. The reviews I have seen say they aren't too bad for the price and they can be taken apart to be rebuilt/ put fresh oil in them, they even have valve shim stacks in them. Apparently their design is a copy of another much more expensive brand's.

very generic but pretty shocks... only preload adjustment... 150psi or so in the bladders... if youre just looking for some nice shocks to soak up bumps these would prob. do just fine...
