GSX1400 Rear Shocks

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by Sir Skuffy, May 14, 2006.

  1. Hey all,



    The rear shocks on the GSX1400 are "totalled" and I need to replace them.... Now, I know WP make some as does OHLINS... But, I am not sure which is the better option and the most cost effective.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Regards

  4. You may have already thought of this, but they will not only be rebuildable, but they will be able to be tricked up.

    About half the cost of the top end replacements and just as good

  5. I totally agree with you Iblast i forgot to mention the fully rebuildable bit, because i do rebuild mine and all the bits are available from your local bearing service for peanuts.
