Mods should probably remove this thread... the group buy deadline has expired.

Has anyone heard from Wilbers or received their shock?

Heard from when they billed my CC for the deposit, yeah.

I got a set of YSS shocks for my R90 from them... had them about a week after I ordered them. They were already made, though. The Wilbers stuff is built-to-order in Germany, I think.

I finally got mine today after placing my order on December 14 and will probably install it this weekend.  If it works half as good as it looks then I am going to be a happy camper.

You know what they say, no pic = no part.

Still waiting for the charge to show up on my CC so I have a while to wait.

I wish I could have afforded one. Hope you like yours. I would like to hear reports from those who purchased the shock. Maybe I'll be able to do it next year.

Unlike the OEM which is one size fits all, the Wilbers shock is custom made to the rider's weight and riding style and that includes the proper spring and low and high speed damping for that spring.  The result is a a very firm but smooth ride that soaks up the small bumps and turns the big bumps into small bumps.  It also makes the bike much more stable at high speeds and it is easy to go 10-20 mph faster than you think you are.  If you weigh more than 160 pounds then you are probably going to be getting a stiffer shock spring and it also will be necessary to put a stiffer spring in the forks to keep the suspension in balance.

If your bike has over 10,000 miles and you are planning to keep it for a while, upgrading the suspension is probably the best investment you can make.

I know. Thanks for making me feel worse!




Just kidding. I'm sure that all the riding I do this year will have me being ticked at not having done the upgrade but there's a limited supply of green stuff.
