K100RS Suspension Replacement

Im looking for a replacement suspension kit for an 86 K100RS and it seems that IKON which apparently is the old KONI can supply the goods. They do a rear shock and progressive fork springs
We often pay way over the odds for anything here in OZ and its often cheaper to ship stuff in.
Can anyone point me in the direction of anyone who sells this gear in the U.S. ?

I have to agree with you re cost of parts in Australia and I tend to get most of mine from the US or UK but I think you will find IKON is still a local brand as their contact details are in Albury NSW and you would have to hope that anything made locally would be cheaper than getting it from OS but you never know...

FWIW I am running an old KONI on mine that is still doing a pretty good job. My only complaint is the preload is not quickly adjustable but in my case that is not really an issue.

Progressive front springs are on "the list" but are still a way off so let us know how you get on.

Regards,

Phil
