Alternate shock choices
Here are two options for rear shock solutions for '08 KLR650s
First: I have developed a new shock for the 2008 KLR with Penske Racing Shocks. We will be looking at the earlier models soon.
Available in three levels of cost/features with the basic model, called the
8900E, being an emultion style shock absorber, without a remote resevoir.
This shock has Adjustments for; Spring preload, Damping (affects both rebound and compression) and ride height.
Note, ride height range is plus or minus from stock, This is a better choice for lowering than dogbone lowering links that allow the tire to hit the fender on big bottom-outs.
These are not catalog part numbers off the shelf. All are built custom per each rider's weight and needs. Delivery time is 2 weeks, drop shipped direct to you. Retail cost is only $615.
Introdutory price of $561.25. for a limited time
If you want to add independant Compression adjustability it requires the remote resevoir and added cost. That will separate the rebound and compression circuits for very effective tuning.
Second: We have been a RACETECH Center since 1996.
If you have a blown shock we can rebuild leaking shocks for under $180.
That includes; labor, new seals, Racetech's UltraSlick suspension oil and nitrogen pressurized. Each rebuild starts with a trip thru our Sonic Parts Cleaner. two days turn-around time typical
While we are there, installing a Goldvalve kit (retail $169.99)
and proper spring (retail $109.99) to suit your weight will put you on a very quality ride with much improved wheel control thru better damping.
Depending on your weight you may not even need a heavier spring. I weigh 170# and am quite happy on the original spring rates front and rear
Either way, we garauntee satisfaction.
Call me to discuss options, needs, orders.
