I know some of you have pans so thought I'd ask, I'm after a good rear shock for my 96 st1100.
Can they be rebuilt or am I better off just replacing it and if so what with as the one that's on just isn't up to carrying both of us. It bottoms out and the stand catches quite bad on cornering. Could just get rid of the stand I suppose, it would be a cheaper option.

Dale - I have a Maxton shock on my 1100 - very good but quite expensive. It was the best option for me as I live about 7 miles away from them!

The Pan I have is now fitted with a Hagon spring and shock. They make them to suit different weight ratings. The guy who it came from asked me what combined weight it was going to be carrying. In my case it was only going to carry one person, who at the time weighed in excess of 25 stone and so they supplied one that would carry him and luggage.
It has proved excellent and is not harsh, even when I am riding it solo and with no luggage.
As bitontheside said about the Maxton, they are not particularly cheap, but certainly the Hagon has proved good over the years.

Not quite sure now where it was ordered from, but it may have been from Hagon themselves.... www.hagon-shocks.co.uk/

I have what is probably the only Hagon shock ever built for a GL1500. It is the prototype and I love it. For the first time my wing handles better two up or loaded - probably because I'm not that heavy.

I've also got Hagon fork springs.

Dale a cheaper option would be when you get to left handers to stop and just waddle round with the bike, no need to thank me mate, just thinking out the box. Actually my suggestion would have been Hagon as well

It's not leaking at least not any more, it may have nowt left to leak. It's just a bit stiff and lacklustre if you know what I mean. It bottoms out and stand catches the floor when sue is on and it squeaks ( you would squeak if she sat on you too). It looks like this pic off net but mine is better looking than that and he wants £150 plus post for it.
I'll get a pic for you later.

They must come apart as hyperpro do a progressive rear spring for £84 or a full spring kit for a round £200 I run a full hyperpro set up on 1800 and best thing I ever fitted.
