    Does anyone know where I can find a set of cheap rear shocks? I'm looking to keep the stock size, possibly a little taller for a cafe build I am doing. I believe they are 330mm. I have been looking around, but most of the ones I find are shorter. I am trying to avoid paying a few hundred for progressive etc.

    I bought HAGONS through Dave Quinn, and love them. I think they were around $240.00-260.00 shipped. He re-sprung them 3X over the past few years for free, they've worked very well for me, and I ride 'spirited' most of the time. I'd highly suggest Dave (great service), and the Hagons..
