Lindemann Engineering for Shock Rebuilding

Not sure if this is the right place to provide feedback on a small shop that rebuilds BMW ESA and ESA2 shocks (SHOWA).
When the rear strut on my 2011 RT started leaking I searched high and low for advice on repairing, and I was mostly told I needed a new shock, either the OEM to the tune of $2500, or aftermarket with prices ranging from $800 to $2000.
Then I found a mention of Lindemann Engineering, looked at the web site, called Ed the owner, and sent my shock for repair.
The OEM Showa is officially non-rebuildable, however Ed can drill/tap and add an air valve that will be used to refill the shock with the proper amount of nitrogen.
My bill was $150 for the rebuild, $100 for the addition of the air valve, and $10 for a bushing (i apparently rode the bike too long with the leak ).
Ed actually worked on New Year's Day and had my shock ready to be picked up the very next day.
And if you want to talk shocks and forks you can call him at 909-838-4587 and learn a thing or 2...

Re: Lindemann Engineering for Shock Rebuilding

I don't know the new owner but when Jim (Lindemann) was was alive LE was THE place to take your stock BMW shock. As a rider and as an employee of a local BMW shop I saw many stock BMW shocks greatly improved by LE. Nice to hear the new guy is continuing the good work.
