Re:

I've just looked at the Shock Factory website - the price for a pair now seems to be £700 rather than the £550 paid by Rich back in January. That's a hell of an increase! It can't be Brexit-related, the exchange rate is much the same as it was back in January. :? Pete Hi Pete, The list price for my...

Re: Shock factory by Mike capon

Hi Guys, Have bought a set of these for my 11s after looking at the other options and costs available, not yet tested as I am upgrading other bits to the bike but after speaking to Mike Capon and reading the reviews it was a no brainer really.
These shocks are a quality bit of kit.

Probably better get a second pair of hands to stop the bike falling over too.


Thanks for the advice.

Stubborn Nut

Hi, Can anyone tell me the best method to undo the the lower front fork brace suspension nut, have tried heating the nut as per the workshop manual but it will not budge. Also I assume it's a right handed thread.
Cheers.
