I don't even have the phone call yet.

Actually my build was a little weird (a bit extra height and travel to match the RM forks they are also building) so I probably got shuffled to the second wave.

If I rebuild my shock, it is necesary to fill with nitrogen? here it is difficult to obtain it easily, could be compressed air only?

It will work, but air expands with heat, so the damping will be very different at the end of he ride.

i got mine yesterday and installed it, but i think it's broken the rebound adjuster doesn't click like it's supposed to. I'll have to give them a call after the holidays to see what's up.

Hey guys is there a new group getting together yet on the cogent shock? It's a huge chuck of change that's for sure, but also I have no doubt an amazing and excellent product too.

So can someone confirm the cost? I need to make sure i can afford it, or start saving...

$395 for the rebuild
$125 for the coating? (less if its in a group?)
$90 for the spring (if you need one)
$295 for the DIY'er (no coating...are there local shops that do the coating?)

also shipping cost....

So a round figure of doing it the best way is over $500 with a spring and coating.... i need to save

Seeing how well the DR650 shock comes back from Cogent, I was wondering if Cogent is also doing the DL650 shock and the SOQI shock for the Wr250R/X?

I rebuilt mine with a RT Gold valve and added a heavier spring. Its great now. No more pogoing off the top of jumps. It launches perfectly with just the right throttle input.

I'm still trying to dial the front end in. It close but not quite there yet.

Clayjars,

We do both of those shocks with a lot of options. A basic rebuild and revalve of the DL650 shocck runs around $200.

We have custom springs for those too. The Yamaha shock costs less because it is designed to be worked on.

We have custom springs for the Yam too.

Thanks!

Shock Options?

So I put a 99 RM250 front end on my DR650 and now it steers like a chopper. I can tell just bouncing on the bike that the front is way stiffer than the rear. I see that some of the DR guys are changing the oil in the rear shock to 10wt and re springing the shock and calling it good. That's the cheapest option. I contacted most of the major shock shops and the only one that did not contact me back was Cogent Dynamics. Hyperpro offered a complete shock in the $600 range with a coupon for a free service at 30k. Wilbers offers 2 shocks starting at $960 and ending at $1090 depending on the level of trickery you want. I have bought everything from Ohlins to Hyperpro ESA in the past and have been happy. So does a guy just buy a new shock or have the stock one tricked out. If I buy a new shock I can pull it when I sell the bike and sell it and sell the shock in the flea market. Whats the best way to go?
