Looking for some assistance. Did not find much under searches. My rear shock is now acting like a pogostick. I assume in needs to be overhauled or replaced. Where can i have this done and for how much? Thanking you in advance
Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

I think its something like Hayward? Could also be his surname and you have his first name.
I'm sure someone like PeterVee will help us right here soon.

R1500 is not expensive - I think I paid more or less the same at Michael Fuchs.

While you're at it - remember to have the spring changed as well to suit your body weight - I loved the difference it made!

Mike Fuchs finished recon and servicing of my WR's rear shock before Easter, final invoice was R1499.... good ballpark pricing then.
