    I did exactly that searching for new shocks for an old XJ750. They found the required measurements and then made a list of price based options ... with comments on their practicality for MY situation and use. Don't judge ALL Bike shop dealers by your (obviously) limited experience.

    Or take it to a Hagon supplier for direct comparison.

    Yes my forty years of being a motorcycle enthusiast has taught me nothing, clearly.

    Obviously ... if it was all at the same dealership ... ?? The one you used/claimed as "proof" the dealers would be of no use to him ...

    And I'm in my 46th year of motorcycling ...

    I could go to Davidson Honda in Alex and see if they want to part out that XR185 above the doorway.

    Thanks.
    what spring rate would you get.
    I have just re suspended a CRF 1000 with rates radically different from original, as advised and calculated from Nitron, but you could probably buy a used Himalayan for that sort of money and have a bike that is essentially the same as a motorsport.
