I was reading the latest Motorcyclist, and they did a brief review on Wilbers shocks. They look comperable to Works shocks on both price and options. I don't recall hearing anyone running one on an EX500. Does anyone have any experience with Wilburs? It's another option, at least.

Although it's short, here's the full article from Motorcyclist: http://www.motorcycle-suspension.com/images/press_motorcyclist.pdf

Per the model/pricelist (http://www.motorcycle-suspension.com/shock_absorber/wilbers/racing_suspension/shock_absorber_kawasaki/index.html), here's the Type 630 that's recommended for the GPZ500S (a.k.a. EX500/Ninja 500R): http://www.motorcycle-suspension.com/wilbers_shock_absorber/type_630/index.html. It's worth noting that it offers preload and rebound adjustments standard, but neither compression adjustment nor a remote reservoir are available. The $449 price seems about right though compared to the competition.

I've got one on order. Apparently there was a problem with some manufacture in Europe. So they called me and explained the situation in great detail. Outlined the changes in the product, all of which are good, better components etc...I've got a camera now so as soon as I get to reading the instructions I'll post pic's as soon as I'm able. Turn around time approx 5 weeks.

Plus if your so inclined you can get this stuff on them: http://www.tipp-69.com/usa/hydraulic_preload_adjustment.htm
