    Default Rebuid shocks?

    2003 Viper SX700. Front shock leaking. Dealer said can't be rebuilt. New ones $700 each from Yamaha!. What are my alternatives? Love this sled

    Uh, they are rebuildable.
    All the aluminum bodied keyboard shocks are.
    Usually around $50 a shock to rebuild and charge each one.

    The dealer wants you to give him $700 for a shock. Here is my my rebuild guy. Have him rebuild, revalve & possible respring that shock to your weight. My 22 year old sled now rides like a Cadillac. My re-spring was partly because I am @ 300# w/ riding gear.

    Yeah, any decent shop that can get parts, can fix those right up.

    Stating the obvious is not neccesary!

    You can easily get both of them rebuilt & revalved for 1/2 of that $700.
