    Hi from Australia the proud owner of a 2012, maroon retro. I have just racked 2500 kilometres on it . I ride it daily and the only issue i have is that the other day i hit a bump on a dirt road and felt like i compressed my spine by 6 inches when the rear wheel hit it. Any recommendation on an alternative shock set up. By the way i have tried adjusting the shock preload and it was even stiffer I'm running on the lowest setting. Thanks

    Have a chat with Ikon at Albury. They do shocks for the regular Urals. They probably haven't looked at a Retro, but I'm sure you'll find them helpful.
