    Recommendations for Rear shock Re-build

    My stock Ohlins rear shock is due for a re-build. Any recommendations on a good shop? I emailed Rocket Ron Racing to see if they are still in the KTM shock business but have not heard back from them yet. I also reached out to Ohlins USA and same deal, waiting to hear back from them.

    I run Wayne’s PEP ZPS setup on my Raptor and love it but not sure that I will reach out to him on this re-build. It seems Ohlins isn’t in the ATV shock business anymore (at least what I can tell) and I’m not to sure about who has the capability of getting parts and doing the re-build.

    Any help or advise is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

    Have you tried the KTM shop? Not particularly familiar with all other shops but I heard KTM shop is good. I'm sure there'd be more suggestions though. Wait for those who have first-hand experienced recommendations. Good luck!

    Hi again. Just found this in the forum.

    @steveo525 is selling parts. He may have something that you need.

    Might give Hygear suspension a shout. I haven't personally had them do any work for me, but I know they sell Ohlins parts. Whatever shop you use ask if they use a vacuum bleeder setup. It's tougher to get the air all bled out of the rears with the double piston design.
    Mine:
    2017 Husky FX 450
    2009 505 SX
    2008 525 XC-modded for mx (currently 450 cylinder)
    Dad's:
    2009 450 SX
    2008 450 XC
    2008 540 XC

    You should rebuild them yourself. I just rebuilt the front shocks on my 525--it's not that hard. I got the parts from Ohlins--new seal heads, bumpers, oil, etc.--and spent 100 bucks. The shop manual shows you how to do it. You just need a local shop to charge the nitrogen.
