    The whole thread, mostly discuss the Cons of Gas Shocker...... wondering why dont someone suggest to replace with Conventional Hydrolic Spring Shocker?

    I am using GS150R. The shocks has gone bad in 2.5 years (29K km).
    Options I have :

    a) Recondition/Repair the Shocks - which will cost around 400x2=800/- approx (including hydrolic oil drain & refill with Oil seals change, Refill Gas & Straighten the rods - if bent.
    b) Switch Over to a new pair. For this I will prefer a Shocker set of LS135 (reasons P150s Shockers are smaller than GS by approx 1.5 inch, but the LS Shocker Size matches with GS, The Black Shockers looks better than the whicte ones of GS, LS135's Shocker Set costs around 1650/- vs. that GS shocker set costing 3600/-)
    c) Will the HH ZMA's/Xtremes red Shocker (old one - not the Gas Filled new) match the Length? If yes - this is the best option as it will be much cheeper than Gas Shocker. It will also last much longer than Gas Shockers.

    What do you say guys? BTW what is the length & cost of HH ZMA's/Xtremes red Shocker?
    I too felt the GAS shocks give up early.
    My Hunk's GRS shocks, though not leaking, have become hard after 30k kms.
    There is hardly any action when riding solo.
    Between what is issue with your shocks, they started leaking oil or ride quality reduced?

    P135 shocks won't be a good idea as P135 is a very light bike weighing around 125Kg, where as GS weighs around 145 Kg. The ride and handling will be affected a lot.
    The best option is GS shocks itself, otherwise shocks of a bike weighing close to GS. You can think of P150, Xtreme(conventional shocks).

    Did you read the manual i posted?
    Do you have the tools/equipment to do it?

    It's not like you place the manual in front of the bike, break a coconut, run over a couple of limes.. and it's fixed
    Try and get a scrap shock absorber and do your trials on it.

    IIRC a set of these gas shocks used to cost around 1600rs 8 yrs ago, how much are they now?

    Yes boss ... I did read your post
    The reason I was asking for DIY is to collect ideas on doing it by some other "jugaad"

    Get GRS shocks (ones from Hero Hunk) if comfort is concern.
