eddd Posted March 8, 2007 Share Posted March 8, 2007 I've been e-mailing a guy on another web site who owns a 2002 R1150RT with just over 55K miles. We were talking about shocks and the high price of replacements. His are the originals, and he said he really doesn't have any issues with them. He feels the bike handles well. He's owned the bike for about 2 years and got it when it had just over 30K miles. He has access to a set of factory shocks that were taken off another R1150RT when that owner upgraded to after-market shocks. The bike they came off had about 25k miles "easy" miles. I told him that many posters here feel that factory shocks are worn out by 25k miles. I've really not seen any posts about those who've kept using their stock shocks. (Maybe they don't want to be flamed.) Anyway, the question is...Would it be worth it to change his higher mileage shocks for the lower mileage ones? He will have to pay the other guy something for the shocks. Buying new shocks does not seem like it is in his budget , so that isn't an option. Thanks Link to comment
