There's a lot of us that would be happy to review it and help you out with that and post it on U Tube. That's what I think at least.

We definitely understand that and if anyone is interested in doing something like that don't hesitate to reach out I am sure we can work something out. The main reason the discount is so much higher for local is that we can do the install and work closely with the owner to get everything setup so we can help everyone out more.

First .sorry for being a smart ass .. but I thought we got some GREAT responses
Second just last week I stopped in at KFG Racing in Auburn WA ..they do so many FJR suspension works ..that they keep TWO kits in stock at all times

and they gave me a much higher price for a 2 end fix then what you have . ( about 800- 1100 front only ..and both ends about 2200 parts and labor ) .wish I were closer .
I can do 99% of my own work .. but not front end ( live in apartment )

BTW are you saying we can get the front and rear parts for 1300 - 10% ?? so $1170 ??

Yep! Front fork springs picked for your weight, Oil, and the Nivomat rear shock for 1170.

We also carry other options that are normal nitrogen shocks built to your specification.

The nivomat shock will self adjust your sag based on the weight on the bike. It takes about 30 seconds of riding for it to level its self out based on how much weight is on the bike. A large dip in the road will not change where the shock adjust its self to. If you take a look on our site Wilbersusa.com it explains it all and there is even a video showing how it works.

You are comparing new cartridges and springs in the front plus new rear shock for $2200 vs just new rear shock and fork springs for $1170.

Those of us from PA think of the tri-state area as Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. JS

Is $1259 less 40% the installed price (+/- sales tax)? That'd be a hellova deal.

If loud pipes save lives, imagine what learning to ride might accomplish.

Been running once since the first FJR-Forum group buy back in 2004? 5? Works a treat. Serviceable too. What was learned during the group buy is that the OEM spring rate "calculations" give US riders a little softer feel than usually preferred. I don't know if that's because Yurpeein riders like "plush" or if their roads dictate "plush" but a discussion with who you go through about those possibilities is in order.

Years ago someone told me LA to El Paso is closer than El Paso to DFW. I finally checked it out and confirmed it. It's not by much but it's true.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.
