I put Wilbers on my 2003 GS in 2004. Bought the remote high/low speed compression damper and hydraulic preload adjustment options and spent $1250.00. Bike had a little over 35,000 miles on it when the shocks were installed and I couldn't believe the difference. The only change I made from the way they were set-up from the factory was to decrease the low speed compression dampening 1 click. It made such a difference on the ride quality and handling that when I installed the stock shocks back on to send the Wilbers to be rebuilt at 85,000 miles that the wife refused to ride with me as she felt the bike was "too unstable and moved around too much" on twisty roads. Reinstalled the rebuilt Wilbers and all was well. I had the shocks built for me with blue springs, and red and blue accents on the rebound and compression knobs. Looks good with the yellow tank, blue/gold Spiegler brake lines and blue valve stems.
