Hagon Shocks? Pros and Cons

Any experience, good or bad, with these shocks on a K12RS. My OEMS are shot and the Ohlins and Wilbers $$$ are not in the cards for now. My understanding is the Hagon shocks are used on the earlier BMW's mainly in Europe. Just wondering if anybody has put them on a K12RS. Thanks for any info you may have.

how much are OEM?

and what are the other alternatives to the $$$ of these pricey aftermarket jewels?

I also cannot see dropping 1400-1600 on new shocks. What are the other choices?

Thanks,

Gravity

Hagon Shocks

I can get a set of Hagons for @$750.00. OEMS @$990.00. Wilbers @$1110.00. Ohlins @$ 1350.00. And what gets me is that these are bottom of the line without remote adjust. Please correct me if these are the only shocks on the market for the K12RS. I just can't see spending mega $$$ on shocks to just RIDE. I've read reveiws on all listed but the Hagons. Got to purchase something soon.

Consider rebuildability when you purchase...unless you're not going to keep the bike...Ohlins can be rebuilt.
I know it's hard to justify the cost of Ohlins, but the ride quality has, and the rebuildability will, justify them for me....and the mighty K deserves it IMO.

'04 GT...Orient Blue...Staintune...Ohlins...Power Commander
