Time for a rear shock replacement
« on: September 04, 2016, 11:58:22 AM »
As I have removed the rear fork from my 1992 Daytona, I removed the Koni as well. I think it has been sitting there since the bike was born. Looks OK and doesn't leak, but it must be shot by now  :clock:

Any suggestions on which replacement I should go for ?
Koni does not make dampers for bikes any more, then there are WP which were used on the RS, I think, but not sure if it will fit ?

Thankfull for any advices / suggestions

All the Koni tooling and designs were sold Whollus Bollus to 'Proven Products' in Albury NSW, Australia. They can probably supply an overhaul kit for your shock or sell you a new one if you are satisfied with its performance.

Yes, sorry, I wasn't clear. Koni shocks are now manufactured as 'IKON' by Proven Products in Albury.

Thans Pete, tris & Turin

You mean RaceTech like:

Race Tech
1501 Pomona Road
Corona, CA 92880-6990
??

What about WP ? If it has got an external expansionchamber (Piggyback) will it then fit the ordinary Daytona ?

Yup, that Race Tech. They offer full rebuild services for forks and shocks, and also have their own line of products. I don't know if the WP shock will fit, but I'd think it would.
