Thx Sawman, glad too be here. :canuck: seems all the riders whom have invested in the Bitubo sound satisfied. Just the extra cash is rough, what was the price in our bucks for the Ohlins for your wife's BR replacement? Maybe I have to save more over the winter? Thx again for any info, regards, Glenn :banger:

I haven't purchased one yet for her scoot , I bought one back in 2006 for mine , but have since sold it , didn't know at the time we would end up with a second BR , but I'm thinking one would run about $600 Canadian , you would have to call Ohlins USA to confirm.

Its been a long time, but when I got my Ohlins, they had to be ordered in pairs.....?
Or was it just a better deal that way?
I think it was Jim T and I that went in on a pair.

HHMM, that's interesting. The Bitubo was quoted to me at $515 shipped ups from Ontario. At $700 for the Ohlins.... :?: maybe I should just get an updated quote from Ohlins for the hell of it. Not really needing 2 shocks :meh: I've only seen 1 other 2005 Big Ruk around town, then one just showed up on kijiji for sale, way low kms(800) :highfive: Thx again for the input gentlemen, regards, Glenn

I have run the bitubo and blown it out twice.

the first time I blame on winter driving, yes I put studded tires on and rode all winter in Halifax. coldest ride -30C. I got it warrantied the first time.

the second was on alberta gravel roads.

both times the oil leaked out of the seal. I still have the shock I know of only one repair facility in Canada and it is in Ontario. if anyone is interested in it make me an offer, it is still a good rebuildable unit coating on the spring has crack off in places.
