That price is a great deal if it is the Full Monty shock.
Right, of course! That's why every shock ordered will be custom for the rider as noted.

I have had an Elka for a couple of years now on the 800gs. I know it says ride height adjustment, but unless they have changed the design since mine it doesn't.

Also for those thinking about the remote preload adjuster, I have blown three seals so wouldn't bother if I was doing it again.

Otherwise an awesome shock.

Here's a pic of the Dakar shock. Looks like it has a ride height adjustment on the bottom. Guessing they've updated it.

I did a custom 8" stroke offroad valved rear Elka for my buddies Versys.
3 Way loaded reservoir and hydraulic preload and adjustable ride height on the bottom clevis.
No issues and phenomenal off road valving!
I wish I would have got that over the Hyperpro which is valved more for street riding.
In 2 years and plenty of off road pounding he has had no issues with the Elka rear shock.
Oh and it is so beautifully made as well!

Looks like a great price on a much needed upgrade. I'm in! Should go nicely with the shiver mod forks.

Thanks GP
