I got the reply from Wilbers. Looks like that is the way I am going to go.
I can supply a stock replacement spring which is 30 % stronger (load carrying capacity) then the stock one @ $ 116.00 + S&H, or, I can supply you a complete new shock.
The following is some general information as well as pricing and pictures.
The WILBERS shocks come with a five year warranty.
The service intervals during this time are approx 2=3 years or 20-30,000
Service is done here in the US at my place at a cost of approx. $ 75 - 100
The WILBERS shocks are custom built to your specifications by the factory
and not converted over here. Other shocks (Oehlins, Penske etc.) are usually
customized to your specifications by the guy who installs them, or you have
to send them to a service place at additional cost.
The shocks can be built to lower your riding height - some bikes up to 2",
as well as to raise the riding height at no additional cost. Other
manufacturers will not do that at all, because it does not agree with their
mass production, or way of manufacturing.
The WILBERS shocks are offered with adjustable HIGH and LOW speed
There is a choice between a BLUE (standard) or RED color spring, at no cost.
Other colors can be done at extra cost.
Delivery is between 3 - 4 weeks.
The WILBERS shocks are high quality items, exclusively built to your
specifications, at a price level of a mass-production item.
For the SUZUKI DL 1000 V-Strom, I can offer the following:
Model 640 @ $ 417.00
the shock has adjustable rebound damping with 22 clicks, and infinite
variable adjustment for the spring pre-load via C-spanner
Model 641 @ $ 627.00
the shock has adjustable rebound damping with 22 clicks, as well as High and
Low speed compression damping with 22 clicks each and hose mounted
# 629 = infinite variable adjustable ride height +/- 1/2" @ $ 66.00
# 625 = hydraulic pre-load adjuster for rear shock, to eliminate the
fiddling with the hook-wrench @ $ 196.00
The attached pictures (generic) show the different models and installed
S&H in the US is $ 20.00 per shock
If you have any questions or want to talk to me about it, call me at either
my shop 877-786-6543 or eve. 732-845-3557
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be of service.
