Yes, they make a nice shock. I've used them on other BMW's but with the huge potential for weight change on an LT (solo, passenger, lot's of gear) not to mention sporty riding today and touring tomorrow, I prefer a shock with lots of adjustibility. Not to mention I can feel a lot of difference in handling on the bikes I've installed high end shocks on. You do get what you pay for.

Works Shocks

We use them on the wifes RT and they seem to be ok; we have to send them in for a rebuild every two years. The customer service leaves something to be desired though; we have had problems in the past but the shocks works fine.

Works has been around for over thirty years. They do a very good job excellent quality. Historically they under spring there suspension, So add about 25 lbs to your BW. I have a works front shock and a ohlins rear HAPPY!

According to their web site about 850 for the rear, 309 for the front.

Smile works shocks

best move I ever made was to works shocks
fully adjustable compression and rebound adjustments.
custonized spring rate for your total weight (you and passenger plus
normal trappings)
easy to install great riding ahead

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

They told me at the motorcycle show that if they can have your stock shock, they will remove the adjuster on the rear shock and save you, I think he said $100-150, or something like that. He also said to say you talked to them at the motorcycle show for a 10% discount.
