I'm happy with the HyperPro from EPM in NJ. Hope they're still there!

I am 250lbs and often load up the bike.

Picked up a Progressive rear shock for $300 and it has been on the bike for about 2 years now. Been very happy with it - good value for the money.

That being said I am not a very aggressive rider but Bluelightning has ridden my Strom and about my size and really liked the setup.

If money is an issue it is probably a very good alternative value wise.

If I were in the market now I would look at the Progressive, Ricor, and Cogent Dynamics rear shocks as a value type replacement.

You don't want to know

I have during my life liked Progressive stuff. I usually doubt whether there is a real world difference in many things especially like a 2 1/2 times price difference. I never have a passenger or usually a heavy load so the hydraulic spring adjustment would not be important. The Progressive with the adjustment being a real $750 would make me look away compared to having like racetech remake a stocker.

I don't think they change parts and I would worry about rebuilding a shock with 50,000 miles

Thats true,at 50,000 miles there maybe hard parts that are simply worn out !!.
