    Well even i am facing the same problem . I ride a 2006 apache 150 and bike has covered 55k kms. Now the rear shocks are completely gone . I am planning to fit the pulsar's shocks on my bike as they are cheaper because apache's are around Rs 1600 each !! I also want to go for the pulsar's shocks because the ride will be much better although i know i will lose on the handling front !, but i have to save my back anyways

    Do the Gas Filled Shock Abs. actually give smoother ride than normal ones?

    the damping factor for any shock absorber depends on the damping media as well as the internal design of the shocks. two shocks having same internal fluid may have different damping factors and vice versa.

    using the nitrox instead over of the oil improves the responsiveness of the shocks to the road conditions, which is again subjective to the design as well.

    bajaj pulsar and HH hunk both have nitrox shocks; but hunk feels lot more smoother than pulsar.

    Now comming back to thread querry, there is nothing to recondition in the nitrox shocks (advisable). we can only refill the air in the shocks to regain the original pressure.
    RIDE IT !

    Its pointless refilling the gas in the shox of a pulsar. I had to get them changed when they lost the damping. They cost somewhere around 1500 not more than that

    +1. My shocks have become damn hard in 10K kms. I have refilled gas twice, still no improvement. Adding to that the stupid mechanic also made the setting of shocks to STIFF. My back is broken almost every pothole.

    Will have to change the shocks this time.

    No idea about the cost. But if you are thinking of installing them on your pulsar then chuck the idea. Those are too soft for a pulsar. The bike keeps bouncing when riding alone and the height reduces a lot when with a pillion. A friend had installed those on his P150UG3

    Hunk's rear shocks costs nearly 1800 per piece.
