If I may suggest, start eyeballing eBays and such for some Husqvarna TE series Marzocchi Shiver 45mm units. TE 610 forks up to production year ´07 is your closest bet, as they come with close to correct spring rates as stock. Suitable units appear every now and then, not too often.

I did the Shiver fork mod last spring, found a very good deal on eBay UK for a set of those TE forks. HP2 Peter was a good source of info, and if you need some detail prep info on this mod, you're welcome to ask me as well, I have every bit of that mod in good memory. It's not direct plug and play, but not very far from it.

For the type of riding I used X for, I would definately do it again. That was mostly off-road, single/double track, sportish type of solo riding, usually with no luggage. Didn't do too much travelling myself.

I foremost wanted and needed more initial plushness in the hi speed compression area, and that I got with the adjusters and re-valving possibilities. Add 30mm more travel, totally rebuildable and adjustable comp unit's - so, you can pretty much set them up to suit your needs any way you want them.

I got a used TE '06 fork set really affordably, so moneywise it didn't hurt much.

For adv-travelling type of riding, I'm sure they'd feel lovely as well. Maybe not as much needed as in attacking trails, but... a quality adjustable suspension units are just that, quality suspension units. You'll learn to love them, and then it's no going back.

Difference to stock: think comparing the stock X rear air suspension to full-blown Hyperpro unit. There you go.

No customs charges in Oz one good thing!

mines all go had it on all good, had the bike die on me the other weekend the battery finally gave up the ghost lucky it was when I arrived at Dales gorge camp ground as I went the disused track up Yampire gorge that Cris Scott filmed the Gorge Riders DVD would of been easy a 2 day hike out of there

battery replaced under warranty and the road side assist is good, although had to hitchhike 110klm to the nearest town to get phone reception, they organised a tilt tray truck to come and get her back to Tom Price, had me a hire car sorted out but that was another 80klms away the opposite direction I was headed and I had 350klms to get home so and extra 2 hours was not in my plans, any got a lift with some guys in their ute the 4 hour trip back, all for a 40Klm track that was 400Klms away I must be crazy oh and the group of 11 french backpackers that helped me out and later crashed at mine what a weekend! always an adventure up here!

The white thing in the creek is my pressure suit so it can cool me down on the ride as it was 44C love the wet season

If you don't mind me asking, how much did the Hyperpro rear shock cost you? I can't seem to find anything other than front fork springs on their website (and no listed prices for that matter).

That may be an old price as the date on the top of the file is 07. Not sure.

Price quoted for Australia for rear shock was approx $1600 aud. about 2 months ago.
