    1997 K1200RS shocks

    Does anyone rebuild stock shocks?

    In the future, please include the year of the bike in question (as per forum guidelines). I have added it to this thread based on your previous posts.

    It could help with the relevance of the answers that you are given.

    Bruce at B-Line Control rebuilt the rear shock on my 85 K100RT in 2008.

    A web search suggests that he's still in business.

    Might be worth a call to ask.

    Not a stock shock, but Bruce at B-LINE CONTROL rebuilt my Fox "Clicker" shock for my '95 K75S - he did excellent work and was great with communication. Even though it wasn't leaking, the rebuild brought improved handling.

    Unless you reallllly like the stock shock, or want to keep it for atheistic purposes, you'd probably be better off buying an aftermarket shock.
