    Sorry to restart an old thread but....

    It appears the "50" service stations in the USA from Wilber's have never appeared.

    I've been trying to get a shock and been going back and forth with beemershop about the specs and spring rates.

    To my knowledge there are only 3 dealers in the USA who can order a shock and get it from Germany in 3-4 weeks.

    Years ago I ordered myself (coincidentally from Dirk) and it was simple and painless. Shock showed up on my doorstep a few weeks later.

    I have a Wilber's shock on one of my bikes and the product is great. It's a shame the presence in the us market is so weak.

    It's amazing a company so successful in Europe can get it so wrong in the USA...

    Ted Porter at the Beemer Shop. Also, Klaus at EPM Performance (original Wilbers importer) was still doing rebuilds a few years ago.
