Wanted: Rear Kw V1 Shock

Post by FrazerD » Thu Mar 14, 2019 10:22 am

Hi folks,

One of my rear Kw v1 shocks has started weeping oil. I have contacted Kw but just wanted to see if anyone had a spare shock or both rear shocks.

Cheers :thumbs:

I have emailed them to see what they say. I just thought I would see if anyone had one or two kicking about.

From my experience with KW they will only service in pairs . Prepare yourself to have your pants pulled down too . :boohoo:

Well so far the communication hasn’t been great but I’ll give them time. They aren’t even two years old so I’m hoping I can wangle getting them on warranty but it might take a bit of careful wording of emails.
