Default Re: Hagon Shocks opens in U.S.

FWIW II.
I have used Works Performance shocks exclusively since they began making shocks, my first pair cost me $99 retail if that tells you how long it's been.
Both my Wings still have Works shocks.

Works Performance quality and service fell off when they became the shock supplier to the Yuppy Mobiles, better known as the custom choppers. Works was no longer interested in single shock sales when boxes could be sold at highly inflated prices to bike "builders". How much customer service and quality do you need for a product that is unlikely to see 5,000 miles in it's lifetime.

I replace the OEM every 40,000 with more of the same.
So it is not the optimum solution. Works for me.

I am not Tim but Race Tech charged me about $350 for this. If I recall it was $200 for a rebuild and the rest in parts. Their Gold Valve, the old seals they replace, gas/oil charge, odds & ends. Maybe $25 was in shipping, I can't remember. I am light and ride solo with light loads so I wanted to retain the OEM spring. A spring upgrade runs it up to about $475.

I had some issues with RT getting it done right. They quoted me a price less than it turned out to be - they forgot to add in the parts cost, duh! The shock went back for rework after rebuild and Gold Valve install (they did not bleed the remote preload adjuster so I shipped it back) and it came back with the remote adjuster hose in the wrong orientation but I fixed that myself rather than send it back a second time for this rework. Otherwise the shock would have taken 8 weeks from start to finish instead of the 6 it did take. I do like the shock the way they did it now that the frustration with RT is a memory.

A major selling point for me was if I keep the bike long enough a rebuild is now possible for less than $250 to make the shock perform like new at least one more time. This compared to $600 - $1200 for OEM new one or other aftermarket alternatives.
