    Hi, I am looking at upgrading my streetglide rear shocks to soak up the bumps better than the standard shocks, I was looking at maybe Ohlins HD 159 (772), Wilbas or Legend Revo as have seen some good reviews online, not sure on other makes. Does anyone have the best place to get a quote for them or if anyone out there is selling a set I would be interested, I'm located in Wollongong, cheers.

    Best to look on Rob's site mate, think I paid about $1250 at the time. I'm only about 80kgs and liked the fact that Rob sets them up with springs to suit the individual and services them if required. 
    Realistically nearly anything will be an improvement over the stock 12" HD shocks.

    Thx for the info, I spoke to Rob from JRI, also was guided to look at Nitron r1 shocks with suspensionsRus Australia being the distributor and service agent, they are made in England and look to be good quality, also spoke to Ikon shocks made in Albury Australia, thinking Nitron as they have a lifetime warranty compared to 2 yrs with JRI? Thx all for the info much appreciated.

    Suspensions R us are also the distributor for Wilbers LDC.I have them on  my bike and recommend same .Not as dear as Ohlins but seem comparable in performance.
    (Had Ohlins on a previous BMW) Brilliant but pricey

    May be a bit far for you but I have found Shock Treatment at Wallacia to be great  https://www.shocktreatment.com.au/

    At the worst give them a call and see what options they have for you. Ph: 02 4773 9115

    Hey Tags. Thanks for the call about the JRi Shocks. 

    I just wanted you & anyone else who purchases any JRi products from us to understand that the 2 year warranty on offer is unlimited in km's & only available from us. JRi offer 1 year, I offer the 2nd year off my own back because I believe in the product. Any item that has moving parts will eventually wear out or require servicing. Yes JRi Shocks are a premium priced unit but service costs start at $160.00 per unit which I think is cheap if not unreasonable. No items I have sold have come back for servicing to date in over 2 years since I became the JRi Shock distributor. 

    The JRi Shock fork cartridge system for the FLH series bikes have been in production for well over 5 years. These are a self contained monotube gas charged system. To this date, JRi Shocks in the USA have never had one come back for servicing in the 5 years. That is a lot of miles travelled in the USA.

    I can't speak for other brands but feel free to reach out if you have any more questions or concerns.
