Wink 89 R100GS ebay shock

Ok my stock shock was done after 50k when pushing on the back a whoosh sound and no spring control.









bought an Ebay stock replacement kinda NOS I hope





Installed - a controlled spring is a good thing





Take your chances on Ebay - I cleaned this up from years of sitting on a shelf mounting eyes looked good for a $165 shipped to my house I am happy - not a $700 Ohlins but will do!!!! Another one available on Ebay measure your current lenght this one was 19.25.

Laugh Works great!!!!

Both shocks measured the same length - I believe the angle of the pictures makes it look like I lost some travel.


Ok did some dirt roads nice windy paved roads and what a difference - This is very nice back end is solid - old shock made the back end feel loose. Very happy even a static test in the garage shows how this new shock dampens / controls the spring.
