I've had a Hagon on my TLS for a couple of years and been happy with it.

It only has one adjuster for combined compression/rebound so there is a limit to adjustability, but on my road bike it is a big improvement over the rotary . . .

I got mine direct from Hagon :)

Cheers, for the quick replies! Can you get on with rebound/comp adjuster seperate. I take it you only get the shock that replaces the rotary and you keep the SOAS?
Sorry tls newbie!

When I got mine they only did one shock for the tls, yes it replaces the rotary and you keep the spring on a stick.

I notice your tl is a track project, in this case i would look to Ohlins/Maxton/Penske/Wilbers for a better, more adjustable solution . . .

But if you're broke, the hagon is still better than the rotary doorstop :laugh

Yeah am trying to keep it cheap, poured enough money into my GSXR! Doesnt need to set the world on fire, just give consistant damping and I am happy :)

Worth looking on ebay for s/h ones, I got a TLR Maxton for £200 awhile back.

could be a time before something turns up though

Have you had any experience with the wilbers stuff?
do they do a direct replacement for the TLS?
I don't think they do, actually

I preferred that bigwigdiver bloke, he wasn't as sharp as you :laugh

I have one for my TLR and very happy with it. As mention though there are better ones out there but at a price. I got mine from Hagon direct but since found this site which was a bit cheaper. You need to email them to get a price.

Yeah have seen that on the Bay, just a bit to expensive for me to spend on the old TL though,I am a Scotsman and am trying to keep it cheap....plus the shock would almost cost me what I paid for the bike! Thanks for the heads up though.....anyone got a second hand Hagon :devious
