First impressions of these replacement shocks are amazing. The build quality is evident as soon as you unbox the ELKA’s. They are setup to your specific riding habits, (personal) weight and machine make/model straight from factory.
Installing them was the easiest mod I have ever done. They fit like a glove. No banging, no pushing, no forcing, no jamming anything in to position – these things fit perfectly. Installation time: less than 10 minutes per side including taking the tire off to putting the tire on.
ELKA claim that the machine will sit at maximum 3/4″ lower than factory but my measurements before and after are showing they sit pretty much the same height.
