Shock life expectancy

Greetings from the Northeast!

 

I just sold my old faithful hexhead GS and am looking to replace it with a newer model, camhead/wethead still TBD.  I'm seeing some sweet deals in the used market in the mid 20,000 mile range.

 

I know that oilheads and hexhead had a 30,000 mile practical shock replacement window for years, is that still valid with the newer ESA units?

Hey Matt. I am at 36K and am starting to feel some degradation in the dynamic ESA shocks that came with my bike and will probably replace them in the next year. As a comparison I replaced my shocks on my 07 GS at 30K so the dynamic ESA shocks seem to last longer than the standard units. Alan (Foot) just replaced his and I believe he has around 50K on them.

I still have a sweet white 2015 with low miles (<17k) ready to go.  Friends & Family discounts available :classic_rolleyes:
