TEC Shocks?

Has anyone installed these? I'm curious if they're any good at all, or if I would be better off keeping the stock ones.

in my opinion if you want to improve your bike's handling it would be better if you put something expensive on her.Its my opinion but its your life and safety and it would be better if you put something thats tested already...

The TEC shocks are working fine by me. I am using a pair on my Bonneville, for the money you can't beat them. Not Tested? What kind of comment is that?

I am sorry but no offence the ''not tested'' saying was not meant to decribe the shocks themselves but the fact that it is better to choose a company who only deals with suspension and more preciselly in the part that you would like to put on the bike/car etc.TEC is really a company that offers great products at the right price(and I use a TEC fork brace) but I would choose something else for my suspension.At last this is my thought and only.Let me be misunderstood.
Happy riding

Thanks dan and cyclops! Glad to see that there is real world experience with these. I just happened across them while checking on the Hagons and o few others. I think shocks will be the next big thing.

Is the blue text on Hagon Road shocks just a decal, or is it permanant? I like how the black TECs look, but they only accept paypal, so I was thinking of the Hagons.

I was looking at the Hagons vs the Ikons when I came across these. I don't know if the "Hagon" is a sticker, but it sure looks like it to me.

The Ikons chrome/black combo are $349 from New Bonneville. That's probably as expensive as I'm willing to go.

My Thruxton fund has taken a recent hit with the powder coated wheels, Maund FEK, and LSL brake reservoir. Have to build it back up for shocks.
