    I'm waiting on the final pricing but it is looking pretty good. :D

    Would anyone be interested in shocks for around $750 to $900 :huh
    3-way shock w/out remote preload would be about $750 + shipping
    3-way shock w/ remote preload adjuster is about $875 + shipping

    No guarantees on pricing until I get enough interest and find out the final pricing numbers. Not sure if they can drop ship of if they would have to come to me and the I'd ship them out from here.

    I'm shooting for ordering some next week. :-)

    Im in the market for new rear suspension to match the YZ forks i just got for my G650GS. I may be in on this! How will the ordering go through since each shock should be set up different for each rider?

    From the Elka website
    I'll take the rider & bike info and payments from those that want the shocks.

    Payments via checks or paypal (buyer pays PP fee) + shipping w/ tracking number. I'll find out the shipping cost ASAP and update the thread.

    When I receive the payment and rider info I'll put in the order(s). Shocks will be shipped.

    You install and ride. :D :freaky

    I just received a quote from Hyperpro for around 1228 plus shipping and handling. I replied back that I found elka suspension for a great deal and asked them what they could do as far as coming down on price.

    Im about 90% sure that Im in on this. Thanks a lot for enticing me to go ahead with the fully adjustable 900 dollar shock. hahah this bike is getting expensive fast.

    Ordering info above. The Elka should be ride height adjustable if you wanted to fine tune w/ the GS-YZ geometry. :evil

    Elka's Canadian. Shipping from the US to Canada will, I'm guessing, be more than $15. Any possibility of a drop ship, to avoid all that cross-border-twice stuff?

    Good point. We're buying from a US distributor tho. The $15 shipping is flat rate from me to each ADV'er buying one. One big order to me, less shipping cost. I'll find out shipping cost and update the pricing ASAP.

    Another vote for the Elka shock. I have one on my 800 and it is a most excellent setup. $875 for the 3way with remote preload is a steal.

    Do it you won't regret it.

    Just got the shipping info. They will be drop shipped direct to each person and cost estimate is $30 per shock for ground or $52 for 2nd day air.

    I'll update the first post.
