Best of luck with the shock. My 05 OEM is un-rebulidable. I took it out at around 25K still working. If it will do you any good, it's yours for a song and a bottle of Bushmills.

I had the same problem on my 2 Shocks on my Green bike ..
They both went out @ 140K.. Only my air shock was holding the bike up..

They were Progressives and they were unrebuildable...
Cost 134 EACH !! Ouch....


Good luck on trying to fix em....

My guy could be #3. Has more tools than a TV repairman and connections with BMW from setting up husky factory race bikes. He's got my HP2 forks right now.

And btw, like Jesus, Hunter needs a haircut!

Too bad Öhlins didn't make them to fit Valks...
Only Progressive does..
But with 140K on a set I guess I got my $$ worth
The air shock is a Goldwing OEM .. And it has a 165 K on it now
And still going strong ...
