    Stock, Hyperpro, Wilbers or any other brand?
    Just to replace a broken stock or to swap to something with a specific character?

    Had mine replaced under warranty 18 months ago as it leaked all the fluid. The shock has now gone rock hard solid and wont adjust at all. Would prefer stock as I probably going to sell bike.

    I have a stock shock, from a 2017 bike (I replaced it with Wilbers).

    It did only a couple of thousand easy miles.

    I’d be looking for about 50% of new price.  PM me with an offer if you’re interested.

    Where are you located?

    See above; make me an offer (excl. added p&p, which would be insured, tracked and signed-for).

    This may help, after a couple of years my shock was getting harder to adjust so I removed the nob (by tapping from the rear using a piece of wood and a hammer) I greased the thread and used a socket to turn the the adjuster bolt fully in then fully out then refitted the nob.I did this 4.5 years ago and now just turn fully hard to fully soft once a year and have had no more problems. If you are binning the shock anyway theres nothing to lose and it might save a few bob and a bit of time

    I tried tapping it of but could not get it off. The adjustment is working as I can feel it on the hose. Just not doing anything on the shock.
