Hi all,

I am seriously considering going for the Hagon short shock.

The local dealers here in Australia do not seem to regard the Hagon shocks too highly, describing it with commens such as "cheap", "primitive", "basic", etc.

I would appreciate any feedback and comments from those that have installed the shock, as to it's quality, etc.

Many Thanks,
Jonty

I would email Hagon,
Tell them what you were told, Let them dispute their quality.
Then order up the shock... I bet you get a good one :upthumb:

I got your PM JontyG. I am happy with mine. Having said that,
the roads here are flat, smooth and we have a corner every
500 miles.But since my feet now reach the ground, I don't
need my pit crew to hold up the bike when I come to a stop!!

Regards TRACKER

Depends on what you're after. They ain't no multi adjustable Ohlins or Penske but they're much better than the OEM unit.

I too have sent you a PM, even though my triple has gone to a new home I still stand by my previous statement - it was the best mod I did to my bike.

As for Hagon being "cheap", "primitive", "basic", Maybe in the 60's but things have moved on, I live about 10 miles from the factory and have been there a few times and trust me - these guys really do know what they are on about, I had them on my v-max, then the supercharged GSX1400 the triple and the new 1400.

Ohh and I bet your 'local dealers' have an alternative shock that's 'much better' but is of course more expensive :wink:

.GNOME.

PS: hi guys, hope your all keeping em rubber side down. In case I don't get back before Christmas, I truely hope it's a good one for you all. Take care and ride safe
