    I was ready to call this Elka Sunday but I guess that's not happening!

    Just got a note from the Elka rep that they are doing an April Special on shocks. Guess it is a spring sale of some kind.

    Stage 4 with remote preload adjusters priced at $995 ea. + shipping, etc. (on sale from MSRP $1245!) but our adv group buy price is still less than that!. :freaky

    So the group buy and prices in first post are still going.

    PM me for pricing and what's available.

    Hope y'all enjoy the excellent Canadian technology.

    Hey, it's Canada, that's our life :)

    Busy right now, I'll unpack it later today. All I know so far is that it has a red spring.

    Oh yeah, and the rebound adjustment is that screw at the bottom, rather than a collar type. I guess to save space, similar to not having the ride height adjustment.

    Couple questions for the folks that have received and installed their shocks.

    Can you post any install pictures? Have you removed the carbon canister to make room for the remote reservoir?


    Mine should be here in a few weeks!

    Haven't done mine yet (see previous post about weather), but the installation instructions that came with it are pretty explicit and have pictures of each step. Looks pretty straightforward.

    I'm in Canada; we don't have carbon canisters so I can't help ya there.

    Edit: no mention of carbon canister in the install instructions, that I can see

    Anyone else ever find themselves checking the tracking update pages more than once a day even though it says next update ___. :haha :D

    Got one more tracking number out to the lucky FF.

    UnsafeHOTADVENTURE and EPICXRIDER I'm expecting your tracking info any day now. Will update as soon as I get the info.
