Re: Wilbur, HyperPro or Ohlins Shock (need your thoughts)
There is more to a shock than the spring and while the spring is an important component, replacing the stock spring is only a bandaid. eventually the whole shebang is going to need to be replaced, unless money is the issue, why not just replace with an excellent rebuildable shock. Ohlins, Wilburs & Hyper Pro are excellent choices, all have their happy customers and all represent a huge difference in ridability and performance. If it helps I once read a post, cannot recall which forum by a fellow who has 2-GS's, one with Wilburs and the other with Ohlins. His comment was "I told Ohlins what I wanted and they sold me what, they thought I wanted". I spoke with Wilburs and they asked what I wanted in a shock and sold me exactly what I asked for" You certainly cannot go wrong with any of the choices you mentioned.
Regards & Ride Safe!
