Life expectancy of rear shock?
« on: May 11, 2010, 04:06:05 PM »
What type of life expectancy should I expect from the rear shock?  It has 28,000 miles on it and I'm just wondering how long they typically last.

If you knew just had bad it really was by having it rebuilt or a proper shock like Ohlins or Fox on there, it would have been over at zero.

Stock suspension is just that. It's really only meant to pacify production numbers for moderate riding.
