Eek IKON are KONI... spell check please




That’s okay, I went ahead and ordered a brand new set of IKON (KONI with the “I” moved to the front) 7610-1298 (same part number at KONI used) for $414 from IKON USA http://www.ikonsuspensionusa.com/servlet/StoreFront Dave Garner.

I’m really better off with a freshly manufactured set of IKON than a 15 year old set of KONI’s, that would likely need to be broken down and serviced before I installed them on the bike.

IKON shocks are the old KONI shocks, right down to the same part number. IKON bought the entire KONI motorcycle business and makes KONI tooled IKON shocks in Australia. There are so true to the original, you can buy IKON guts and use them to rebuild your old KONI’s, what I would have likely had to do to the eBay KONI’s, had I won the bid.
