    Hi there,

    we are searching for rear shocks for Honda Transalp XL 600V PD10 and Africa Twin RD 04.
    Now we are "jumping" on the Carretera Austral.

    Do you have an idea where we could find used rear shocks or buy new ones?

    Thank you

    quite difficoult to find on the south part.
    If you came to Buenos Aires, it could be rebuild.
    It takes 3 or 4 days, but can ask to do it faster.

    Your best bet might be to hop on an overnight bus, with the shock, up to Santiago. There a couple a good shops up there. Google motorcycle repair in Santiago. They are very into their bikes there.
    If you were further south, Punta Arenas would also be a likely good repair station, some great mechanics there too.
