Scottie's Workshop Shock Absorbers for /2 Motorcycles

In case anyone is in the market for a new shock, I have been working with Works Performance on developing a new shock for /2. The requirements of the shock were to address the shortcomings of the current choices: Boges are soft at low speed, but wallow at greater than 65 mph, whereas the Koni's are somewhat the opposite: hard at low speeds and better at high speeds. 

These new shocks are handmade in California with an aluminum body, viton seals, much thicker chromed shaft, and rebuildable. The dampening is soft and low speeds and firmer at higher speeds. I have eliminated the "mini doughnut" cushions in favor of a high compliance progressive cone. I have been really pleased with the performance both around town and on high speed runs. 

Each set (2 front and 2 rear) are $800 per set, plus shipping. Call the shop at 408-475-2696 for more info.
