Hagon tend to make good fair price shockers. They have a range of fitments which include piggyback reservoirs. I believe the original shocks front and rear are Showa, so are of good quality but I don't know if it can be rebuilt?

The air pressure in the rear shock is crazy high,something like 120psi so dont mess about with it..lol

If it needs air i would reccomend getting it done proffesionaly.

As for shocks,Hagon will do you a shock set up for your height and weight for about £350..which isnt bad really.

Call that high?? I used to be test Bay Foreman in a high pressure Air Compressor factory, Bristol Pneumatics Ltd, and we used to produce (my job to test) compressors up to 7000psi - that was high, especially with the fitters we had assembling them!!! :shock:
