    Best of luck with the shock. My 05 OEM is un-rebulidable. :ddog I took it out at around 25K still working. If it will do you any good, it's yours for a song and a bottle of Bushmills.:ear

    I had the same problem on my 2 Shocks on my Green bike ..
    They both went out @ 140K.. Only my air shock was holding the bike up..:huh

    They were Progressives and they were unrebuildable...
    Cost 134 EACH !! Ouch....


    Good luck on trying to fix em....

    My guy could be #3. Has more tools than a TV repairman and connections with BMW from setting up husky factory race bikes. He's got my HP2 forks right now.

    And btw, like Jesus, Hunter needs a haircut!

    Too bad Öhlins didn't make them to fit Valks...
    Only Progressive does..:cry
    But with 140K on a set I guess I got my $$ worth :D
    The air shock is a Goldwing OEM .. And it has a 165 K on it now :eek1
    And still going strong ...
