Hi Folks,

We have a couple relevant updates:

We have finished all the shocks in the last build, thank you! We also have quite a few more shocks in the shop right now so if there are any more of you who would like in on a group build opportunity, we can include your shock to the build if the shock is here by the 15th of February.

We have a price increase to the basic shaft kit. We have added some new parts to the kit that will make it less work for installations not done in our shop and also replace even more parts on the shock. We are no longer reusing the OEM dust cap or bottoming bumper. Our price has been very low and not changed over the past 4 years and our parts and machining costs have gone up a good bit in that time. Compared to the competitive unit that isn't built to the same standards at $399 our $289 was a real bargain. We are having to up the shaft kit price to $335.

The new cost of the conversion without the Hard ceramic coating (internal and external anti wear and friction reducing treatment) is $445 (up from $399). The group special hard ceramic coating is discounted to $45 from the standard $125 (this is unchanged).

Often, we are able to offer group pricing on springs and fork components and work along with these group buys. We are presently investigating ways to better serve our customers that could and likely will change the ways we offer our product to our DR 650 riding friends. We really appreciate our customers and are happy to have well over 200 of you running our custom shock! Thank you all!
