If you did how much was it and how much of an improvement did it make? Thanks for the info I am out with a broken wrist so I got some time off to wait for them.

Thanks, Zack

I got mine done and huge difference, my buddy didn't want to spend the money but after he rode my bike he couldn't believe how much of a difference it really made. he took about 4 weeks to get his done and back, mine took about three. Talking to Rath he does get everything from Wayne at PEP and he is at his mercy sometimes waiting to get the product for turn around time. Well worth the wait.
Sorry to hear about your wrist.

I had my shocks done ZPS with him adding rezzies and valving and spring package cost me $1100. When I was trying to figure out what I all wanted done he had lots of suggestions and options if you don't want to spend that kind of cash. He did ask a ton of questions my weight, current riding style and stuff like that. Just call they guy tell him what you want done and he can price a package to you.

Mine were 965.50, I got the limited mass. They took almost two months to get them back to me, but they are a tremdious improvement, stock is great, but these are that much better. He also installed the ressies in that price. If you have the time to wait, get them done, but give it an extra few weeks on what they tell you, unless things have changed there.

zps is zero preload, there is an extra small spring on top of the normal three(fronts) or two(rear) basically to keep the others from ratteling, you can set the ride height way down to get a low center of gravity for cornering, but when you get air they will come down and you still have all the travel, like a baja truck. The limited mass are prety much the same shock, only without the little spring on top and the ride height adjustability, therfor it will sag a little when you sit on it. With the zps you can very easily switchout the springs for different riding conditions. I have the limited mass, you can view them in my profile. The re-spring/re-valve was under $900 with the installation of the ressies(I supplied the ressies) the extra cost was for shipping.

I think I might just get the rezzies. The only problem isnone of my dealer know anything about anything and have never installed them. They are not giving me a break on the price either. I would like someone that has done it before to do it to.

When you look at it that way, that is a pretty darn good price for all around. I might just have to contemplate getting that done. It's just the down time that would make me nuts.

Well do what I did create time. Go break a bone or 2. Better yet tear a ligament. No j/k lol. Thats why I ask I have sometime to wait so I mine as well get something done. Now that I look at it I can get them revalved for my style and weight and height for $55 a shock for the front pair (not including shipping). Good deal I just think I might have to get it.

Why are you guys rebuilding your shocks and adding ressis for the price of a elka shock and others out there for the same amount that your spending on your fox shocks? Just wandering.

All good set of elka shocks costs well over the price to have you stock ones done. He is using pep valves/springs for his shock service, pep makes a better shock than elka, luckily our stock shocks will accept pep pieces, saving lots of money from buying all new shock bodies.
